WorldWide Tech & Science. Francisco De Jesùs.

The online retail giant is offering semester-long rentals of physical books, with most titles in the $30 to $60 range. Amazon promised savings of up to 70 percent off the print-list price.
For example, one macroeconomics textbook that retails for $170 can be rented from Amazon for a semester for around $46.
"All this means more money in your pocket for the things in life that can't be learned from a book," Amazon said in its textbook rental FAQ.
The rental period lasts for 130 days, with one 15-day extension allowed. Textbooks are shipped at standard prices, and Amazon covers the cost of returning them. Renters may receive a book that is new or used, depending on availability.
