Christopher isn’t shy, but anyone who spends a lot of time around him will soon discover that he doesn’t really talk about himself that much. He’ll brag on me, tell a funny story about our dog, or talk about things going on in our life together. But you won’t hear him talk about getting a promotion at work or about how he dominated in basketball today or even that he is currently rocking his grad school classes. He just doesn’t think to talk about himself with people other than me. I think this is a big part of why people tend to be drawn to him. He is down to earth and humble. Not even remotely conceited. He is genuine and kind. And I love him. But I am getting way away from the purpose of this post. 😉
So, up there… I mentioned that he is in grad school. He actually has been for a year now. For the longest time he really didn’t want anyone to know just because he didn’t want a lot of attention over it. But now that he’s getting close to graduating (this year!) so he has okayed me to share it with you guys. So hooray! He’s in grad school! And acing his classes, by the way! I’ve been so proud of his grades! 😀 He has an amazing scholarship so grad school isn’t costing us a fortune, but his books are still super expensive.
In fact, between the two of us, we’ve spent close to $6,000 on text books for college and graduate school. Um yeah, that’s a lot of money. Most of the books we have sold on Amazon, but I’m definitely a high-lighter/note-writer when it comes to text books so I lost a sizable amount of $$ on each book. This is where CampusBookRentals comes in. Have you guys heard of them? They let you rent your text books from them with free shipping both ways and you can still high light and write notes in the margins! Oh, and if you want to keep a book for future reference, you just pay the difference left after your rental fee!
They also have a new program called the RentBack program where you send them your books and other student rent YOUR book from you. So you get paid each time someone rents your book! The only textbooks I have left are the ones I plan to keep, but if I still had any, I would definitely do this! Also, I love that they are partnering with Operation Smile who provide cleft lip surgeries for children whose families wouldn’t be able to afford it otherwise. And if you aren’t already sold on them, they have a 30 day risk-free guarantee. You can return your book for any reason within 30 days for a full refund.
In case you were wondering, I was compensated for this post, but you can be sure that I will not endorse anything on this blog that I don’t fully back. These thoughts and opinions are all mine (I mean, who else is going to go on and on about how swell my husband is? 😉 ).
