    Thanks, the college and amazon also have rental options.
    We may rent in the future, but most of these books are the kind that he or we would want to keep.

    I kept all of my Lit stacks. I have several sets... and LOVE them.

    my DS's were $850, - he couldn't rent all of them and he wasn't able to get a couple yet! So your number looks pretty good.

    Absolutely!! Great shopping, Ma! When I started college we barely had internet/email so Amazon of course wasn't widely used. I tried a few years later (when I was finally finishing my bachelors) but I didn't find very good deals. I did find better deals at Barnes and Noble or the like than I found on the campus bookstore, but I was always scared I'd end up getting the wrong book so I stuck with the campus bookstore. Now I know about ISBNs and wouldn't hesitate.

    The campus bookstore where I got my master's rents books. Since my employer was purchasing books, they did a full purchase (from the bookstore - amazon is not an approved source yet, although in a pinch they did order me one book from there). Book rental would be a great business gig!

    The books if bought from the bookstore would cost $425 before tax. I just found them all on amazon for a total of $315 before tax. I'll take that savings.
    Here's another source to check prices on textbooks: bookbyte.com

    So, I have concluded that I need counseling for my ED. Unfortunately, finances will not allow for paying $150 per session and only be reimbursed when I hit my $500 deductible. Some of you will say that I cannot afford not to get counseling. Don't bother. Currently our mortgage is late and other bills are not getting paid. Things will get back on track once I get back to work.

    My plan...
    I am going to eat primal without dairy between binges.
    I am going to take the max recommended amino acids.
    I am going to follow my willpower plans from BIW.
    One new solution I am going to try is the SuperBetter online game. You can see the SuperBetter creator Jane McGonigal online in TED talks and other presentations if you are interested.

    I am not about to tell anyone how to spend their money, that is beyond rude! I hope that therapy is an option for your financially, at some point. That SuperBetter thing looks cool! *hugs & tea*

    Thanks. I'll take those hugs gladly.

    I have not been posting about food lately because there is nothing that you guys can do and advice like "put on your big girl panties" will not help. The binging is almost every other day, for the entire day. It does not seem to matter that I am going onstage in a few days or that I have to face my colleagues and students in 2 weeks.

    I'm very sad and scared to be so out of control.

    *BTW, no one has ever said anything like the above quote to me. I just wanted to head such comments off at the pass.
