I assume this pic was NOT taken right after you saw the original prices? It looks as if you left the items in the cart for awhile, thus the price change.

I'm afraid not. I checked the price two ago and it was at $70. http://www.filehive.com/files/080618/Namnl6s.jpg 4. Jun 18, 2008 ### hypatia Did you at least add gift wrapping and a note?

Did you happen to find it during an amazing sale of some sort? Otherwise, I wonder why it jumped so much in price so quickly. Did books on evolution suddenly become collector's items?

I found mine last semester. Everything went fine during the semester but just few days before the exam someone else requested it :grumpy:
I just got screwed with my timings near the semester end. I wanted to drop the book 20 days before the exam and then borrow it again within an hour for next 20 days but I just slacked off

I am learning the borrowing tactics - knowing when to return, request, and renew books.

This is my first time borrowing a textbook from the school library. It's only a 6-week class and I'm supposedly able to renew the book on the library website in two weeks when it comes due. Hope it works.

Evolution at work Moridin.

God says the price of the bible is $29.99. The price has be transcribed for thousands of years and has never changed. That should tell you a little sometin-sometin. Now, of course you could also go the middle eastern route and haggle down the price on your torah/koran. Q:God, how much for this book? A:$29.99
Q: Ok, how about $20? A: How about I send you to hell? Q: OK, FINE,$25.
