WesBooks That Will Never Be Written

pt9

Happy Thanksgiving, readers! A gift from us (and some of you!):

A year or something ago, I stumbled upon a thread on a certain will-not-be-named-Wesleyan-alum-created-website-that-I-refuse-to-endorse. But FUCK THE ACB or not, the results were something special. Here are the examples that started it all:

Posture is Everything: Maintaining a Healthy Gait by Michael Roth
Repressing Overzealous Political Correctness by a Sociology major

Avoiding a Midlife Crisis for Dummies by Scott Backer

A certain class year very clearly won this one, folks. Read on for the results. I highlighted some of my favorites but by all means screw what I think! Oh, and sorry (maybe) for the incongruent Thanksgiving ecards. I may or may not have started drinking at noon. Enough of me, let’s get to it after the jump.

Buy next semester’s books directly from other Wesleyan students at Wesbooks.org!

The WSA is pleased to announce WesBooks.org a platform for Wesleyan students to buy and sell books to other students. By dealing directly with other students instead of third-party dealers, students can save from 30-70% when purchasing books and receive more money for their used books.  Students determine how much to sell their books for and once a book is purchased, the two parties arrange for the payment and book exchange.  We encourage you to take advantage of this free service by posting your books from this semester!

Please email wesbooks2011(at)gmail(dot)com with any feedback. This website was created by a student group and is managed by the WSA.

With Chegg.com, Belltower books, Broad Street, and Amazon already on the scene, this bodes well for free-market competition. OH YEAHHH

WesBooks.org Announcement

So, given that nobody ever really reads WSA emails (hell, I barely check my inbox to begin with), it probably behooves me to reprint the following ‘cuz it’s pretty useful stuff:
