Renting Professional Books

I have read so many book reviews for professional books that I would love to read!  Many times I just want to read them and find out more, but my husband hates when I have books hanging around the house all the time.  I was excited to find CampusBookRentals!

With CampusBookRentals, you can rent a book for a certain amount of time and then send it back.  Sometimes I need this just to get a little more information and to make my husband happy.

Here is a great way to get your books cheaper!  By using Campus Book Rentals you can save up to 80-90% vs. buying your books.  The selection of books is great!  I looked up several that I have on my wishlist and found them right there on the site.  Even though they are not really yours, you can still highlight in them and write in them.  You treat them like your own!

You choose the rental period, which varies depending on how long you need the book.  Then, when you are done, you can return it through any mailbox with the pre-made label.

Shipping always gets me!  I always end up spending more on shipping than I want to, bu if I can wait 7-14 days, it is free BOTH ways!  Otherwise, you can pay for expedited shipping and still receive free return shipping when your rental period is over.

And, what if you realize you don't have time to actually sit down and read the book?  You can return it within 30 days for a full refund!  Wow!

Here is a video that explains it all:

And what about those books you purchased and want to do something with. Usually you sell it back and get maybe a fourth of what you paid for it.  Well, Campus Book Rentals also has a wonderful program called RentBack.

With Rent Back, you can send your books to, and they rent the books out for you.  Every time your book gets rented, you get paid, until the life of your book expires.  What a win-win!

Both sites were super easy to navigate, making it an easy and smooth process.

So, if you or someone you know is in need of textbooks or good professional reading, tell them to head on over to and start browsing for their books!  If you have some textbooks that are still in demand, find out what they are worth at!

And this is also perfect for when you need books for college classes, so if you know someone who is in college or will be, pass on CampusBookRentals and RentBack to them!

**I was contacted by to review the sites and was compensated for my honest review.


  1. Thanks for sharing! Going to check it out now!

  2. Thanks for sharing this, Andrea! I have so many professional books lying around that I don't really use anymore. I think I'll check into the rent back site. As always, I have a nice size list of books on my reading list as well, so this rental thing sounds great!

  3. This is a great deal. I will most definitely look into this. I just spent $60 with Amazon, and I bet I could have saved $45. Oh well. I know I'll enjoy the books I got though.

  4. Very cool! I can't wait to check this out. Thanks for sharing :)
