Is sometimes cheaper for a reason.

Here is a book that I bought about a month ago, and took out of the plastic wrap today for my first day of class...



Looks like a normal book right?

Wrong!



What I really have, is a nicely made, unbinded, copy of every single page to this book.  I guess its really not that big of a deal, but now I need to go buy a 3 ring binder that can fit all these pages.

I went back and looked over the order to see if it mentioned at all that this wasn't a real book.  Not a single word.

I always try to buy my text books unbound, they're cheaper and easier to study from. You can pull out the index and go though the book to find what you need without flipping back to the last few pages.

I'm about to go to Meijer and pick up some more school supplies, including a 3 ring binder.
The only problem should be that its gonna take up that much more room in my backpack.  I have all my classes on the same day meaning I have to carry around 7 books at once.  I go to a community college so I don't have an on campus dorm or anything.

You don't have a car to put your stuff into?

Why 7 classes on one day, too?  That seems like basically the worst decision ever.

I do, but I don't feel like walking across campus to the parking lot with it being so cold.

Just get a huge binder and put all your unbound books in one.  Seems like a great idea to me.
