Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.

If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
