Good lord, have you looked at the price of textbooks recently? That Death class I've been following recently, has a reading assignment for five page in one book for one class session. Five pages. Buy the whole book for five freaking pages. I looked through all of the class reading assignments, hoping there would be a second reading assignment from the book. There wasn't.
The hardback book is $37. The softback book is $16.
$16 for five pages. Not that you would know this when buying the books before class starts.
I'd be so annoyed at the instructor for this, if I hadn't had the syllabus available to check before hand.
Time to see if the library has a copy.
Or if the rest of the book is worth reading.
