Survey: Most Students Shop on Amazon to Save Money on Textbooks - Rhea Kelly, Campus Technology

Fifty-eight percent of survey respondents said they bought at least one textbook on Amazon, compared to 51 percent who shopped in person at their school bookstore. Thirty percent shopped online through another website, and 17 percent shopped on a publisher's website. In particular, students reported that textbook costs at the school bookstore are higher than other places: "School Bookstore typically charges 3x as much as ordering from Amazon or another site," noted one respondent. https://campustechnology.com/articles/2019/03/27/survey-most-students-shop-on-amazon-to-save-money-on-textbooks.aspx?oly_enc_id=2450C6053234D5W
