eTextbooks added to Comparison

boundless has been added to the price comparison.  It is a totally different type of eBook, so I thought I’d take a second to let you know what you can expect if you buy from Boundless.

First, a Boundless eTextbook is NOT identical to the book it replaces.  Instead, it’s a book that the good people at Boundless put together using public domain text.  It has equivalent facts, quizzes, and tests to the official book, but because the content is public domain, it costs a fraction of what an official book costs.  In fact every book costs only $19.99 at

For instance, one of the most popular textbooks on the planet is Campbell Biology, which retails for $213.  On BIGWORDS, you can find this book used for $70 (and you can sell it for just about that much too), rent it for $45, or you can get an eBook for $120.

But, if you buy it from Boundless, it only costs $19.99, making it the cheapest way to buy the book if you never intend to sell it.



Please note that eBooks are turned off by default on BIGWORDS, but you can turn them on easily by clicking on options.

What do I get?

You get the same facts, written by various writers, in the same order.  You can view it on your iPhone, iPad, Android, or laptop computer.  You get a slew of flashcards and quizzes to help you learn the material, and you get to undermine the bookstore man.
