    "Campus Books is fantastic! I was able to rent a used text book for much less than it would have been to buy it. I did this for a few classes that I wasn't particularly interested in and would never need to keep the book as a resource. The process was fast and easy and I'll definitely use them again!"

    "I have found so many great books I may have not had it not been for Book Lender. Sure I can get most books for free but I have found a lot that I couldn't get anywhere else."

    "There was a time not so long ago, where authors and publishers would upload books to the Internet and you could download those books for free...IF you could find them! Thanks to the Internet Archives, those old books were located and made easily available to anyone looking for a title or an author. Now, Internet Archives has corralled all those books into a lending library. I see many titles as I skim through what is available, but I have yet to run into a text book. On the other hand, there are plenty of titles that people used to read for pleasure and information that are now required reading for classes, and those books may be available here for free."

    "I've rented textbooks from Amazon in the past, and found it to be a fairly hassle-free experience. As a Prime member and Kindle owner, I'd hoped I could find more of the textbooks I need on Kindle but the Kindle Owners' Lending Library never has anything I need for classes."
