Seen on the Scene: SOU student response to high textbook prices

'I hate buying textbooks,' says health and physical education senior Kellie Pertl, after paying $455 for an anatomy book. 'It's awful. I can usually find a book on Google Books. It sucks to read a book on screen, but it doesn't suck as bad as dropping a hundred bucks on a book.' - Julia Moore
Writing senior Marcus Dottola, who says he buys texts from the bookstore, with a few from Amazon, believes high book prices stem 'not from greed but from the abundance of government aid to students, which inflates prices.' - Julia Moore
