Some books, more books

Hello messy bun readers, I'm Areeba & I'm sometimes a bookworm. High five if a book-serious-lover is reading, BRAVO! My first ever friendship was with books (okay, after Noor) and I still have a strong relationship with these gems. Don't yawn, we bookholics aren't so boring.

To be honest, there are a few books that totally changed my life or view on reading. When I first picked Diary of a wimpy kid, I was sure that it's a mistake, I AM NOT GOING TO READ A WIMPY KID'S PERSONAL DIARY JOURNAL! But I realized it's a praise worthy mistake. Being a middle kid and having 0 social popularity in school hurts and only a kid like Greg (the wimpy kid) can behave ruthless with it!

My favourite textbook ever! I rarely choose a textbook as my fav-o-type but this one is totally a hit! My most favourite period in Grade 8 was English and I used to read little bit of every story it in & then Google it for the whole novel #googleisgreat 
I still have it in my cupboard, like a little treasure from past classes.

I am totally a typical buyer when it comes to books. Use the coupons, use the best deals for special reading books. If there's a sign of library, it's a win win. But for text books, I gotta find something different! As for my high school years, it's really easy to find a great deal for my whole course but as I'm going to be a big college kid super soon, I WOULD NEED HELP! 
Ask the Lord, search Google & you're done! Pssst, CampusBookRentals exist on this planet.

Here's what they're offering to you guys :
-You can save 40-90% off of bookstore prices 
-Yay, free shipping both ways
-You're free to highlight in the textbooks 
-Flexible renting periods
-Wowza, they donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented
-Much more if you dig on that website

One more thing from them that happify me. This is called RentBack. Oh WWE lovers, it's Rentback not Ryback #kidding

What about Rentback? It's a new initiative that allows students to rent the textbooks they own - to other students... which is totally awesome because it makes them 2-4x more money compared to what they'd make through buyback options! Don't you find it awesome-more-awesome? 

Hey college goers, I guess I've typed much stuff for your help. Have a money-saving + money-making studies. Cheerio!

When it's all college students stuff going on, I'd like to  introduce Christina. A lovely college student & my partner in coming bloggy crimes! Say howdy!

What are the books you luuv most? Ya know I'm hearing!


  1. Ohh you know my childhood favs... The Roald Dahl books. But I also was obsessed with R.L Stine's Fear Street series.. I absolutely loved them.
    I love reading. My auntie gave me a cd with 5000 books on it.. so I google twenty at a time.. see if I like em.. transfer them to my kindle and then I am set for a good while. Getting through 5000 books is going to take me quite some time!

  2. I used to read lots of Christopher Pike books back in the day. A lot. Mysteries are always fun. =0)
    LOL...I giggled when I read rentback, not ryback! hehehe
    Hope your week is off to a great start!

    1. OMG, I used to read every Christopher Pike book. He was one of my fave authors growing up. Still to this day I prefer a mystery over some romance novel (gag me with a spoon).


  3. I was also a bookworm. While growing up, I would prefer to read in my room than watch television with the family. I don't read as often anymore because it seems all I have time to read are my boring psychology textbooks.

    On another note, I love your content!



Whoop! Your comment makes my day!
