Requesting Textbooks


If you cannot afford to buy your textbooks from the campus bookstore, here are alternative resources for obtaining your textbook(s).


Barnes and Noble:

Switchmybooks - allows students to buy and sell their textbooks directly with each other. The website is free to use by students, for students.  It lets you list your textbooks for sell that you have from previous courses and courses you are currently taking and allows other FAU students  to contact you to buy your book(s). Since book listings are campus specific, you can meet up on campus to buy and sell your textbooks with each other.

Amazon - New, Used, Rental and eTextbooks

CheapestTextbooks.com - An online bookstore.

Kno.com - Rent or purchase an etextbook for your tablet or computer.
