No one likes buying textbooks. You pay your hard-earned money to read a couple chapters, take some notes, and sell the book at a fraction of the cost. It’s a waste of money. But startups like Bookstep are trying to solve that problem. Bookstep makes it easy for students to access textbooks online by paying a fraction of the usual cost.
Bookstep is a cloud service for textbooks and other course materials that provides easy access to the latest titles within your web browser. The service also allows students to sell their own class notes, and buy others’. So if you don’t have time to sit down and read all the way through a chapter, you can buy the notes and get the same information in a lot less time.
