REMINDER!: If you haven't left your music here, then you better hop to! Time is ticking. :)
College bookstores and bookstores in general overcharge everyone for books and textbooks. I have found a great way to get more reasonable textbooks- Half.com. I got all of my books for this semester for 5 classes for $100! I just thought I'd share...there are other great sites too but I keep coming back to this one.
Also, you can usually get new (or used) books cheap on Amazon.com and over $25 usually qualifies you for free shipping. They also let you make a "Wish List" that some people I knew found useful for the holidays (they claim I'm hard to shop for :) !).
Today, I am grateful for: a lunch, some fun errand running and friends, family and God.
