2013 Readers' Choice Awards: Best Website for Renting College Textbooks

Even though your campus bookstore may be overloaded with books available for purchase, renting textbooks instead of buying them can often be a cheaper and faster option for college students. And when you're already short on time and money, anything that makes your college life easier is worth a little recognition.


Fortunately, many companies offering textbook rentals have opened their virtual doors recently. Unfortunately, however, it can be hard to know which websites are worthy of your hard-earned money -- and your trust.


Given how much of an expense college textbooks are for students, the 2013 About.com Readers' Choice Award for Best Website for Renting College Textbooks aims to help make renting textbooks online a little less scary. After all, some websites do a bang-up job and should be recognized for it. If you know of a great website that offers competitively priced, quick, and reliable textbook rentals, nominate it using the form below!


The timeline for the 2013 Readers' Choice Awards is as follows:

  • Nominations will be accepted from January 14 - February 11, 2013
  • Voting will take place from February 19 - March 19, 2013
  • Winners will be announced on March 27, 2013


While the nomination phase has now concluded, three finalists have advanced to the voting stage. You can learn more about them and cast your vote for your favorite by March 19!
