A few years ago some of my younger cousins were often spending $400-450 on books per semester!

My youngest is a senior in high school. I volunteer at the school's bookstore. It's not uncommon for an individual book to be $75-$100, or more. The text book profit center has shifted down a few grades - until the high schools figure out how to subscribe to internet sources.

BTW, we've already figured out how to order used books from Amazon and keep a copy at school and a copy at home to save on backpack overload<G>.
