For many college students, acquiring textbooks has become just as hard as reading them. According to CBS News, 65 percent of students skip buying required texts at some point in their college career due to lack of affordability. One professor got so fed up with publishers abusing his students, that he decided to take matters into his own hands. He took the time to do some research and found a legal loophole which he then exploited unapologetically. One guy from his class was so thankful for the hundreds of dollars it saved him, that he shared the story on reddit. Generating over 24,000 upvotes, you could say the internet was thankful as well!
