    I look forward to it! Oh yes, in America they completely screw you over money wise don't they? :/
    Actually I'm an international in the UK and not in the US in terms of fees But for UK students that's true

    Break the spine, fold the pages as bookmarks, use as coasters....

    Thanks but actually it's still slightly more than UK home, so you're still up there! That's nice for you though, and yes those lucky Scots! :argh:

    It really wasn't :cry2: But that's okay thanks! Time has made it better

    Ughhh that makes me cringe. I would be SO mad if that happened. I mean even though they're really affordable, books seem to be so valuable - I'm sure others feel the same way! Is there a book club at your uni? I really hope I have time to keep up with my reading habit next year when I start at uni D:
    I let my reading slip a fair amount when I was at uni. We have a reading challenge if you want to give yourself a target http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=3827593

    Ah, yes, of course, sorry.
