Getting a good night's sleep is one of the most critical aspects to professional and academic performance, health, and happiness. Unfortunately, many of us don't get enough sleep. When you don't get enough sleep, your work and school performance suffers, your health suffers, and your mood suffers; but when you get enough sleep, you can excel at work and school, enjoy increased health benefits, and find life more enjoyable.

Books come in all kinds of formats. Besides the standard new or used editions, you can also get eBooks, rentals, teachers editions, or international versions. Direct Textbook consolidates all these formats into one page making it as easy as possible to find the exact version of the book you want. But what if the format you want is not available? With the new DirectTextbook.com in-stock notifications by format you can be notified when the specific format you are looking for is available! Sign up for an alert and we will check daily to tell you when your desired format is in-stock at one of the many online stores we display. You want the ebook not the paperback, or you want the less expensive international edition and not the hardcover? No problemo, sign up for an in-stock alert and get an email once someone has it!

You can find the in-stock notification area here...

In response to a link on Instapundit about Robert Morris University making textbooks available in their library, we mentioned our library search for any book.

Glenn graciously mentioned Direct Textbook on his site, and we got to feel the surge of the 'Instalanche' of traffic.

If you don't attend Robert Morris University, you can still look for your textbooks in a library near you, or see if you can get them through inter-library exchange. On any price page you can click on 'Find in Library' to check.



Thanks again to Glenn, and we hope that this might help you save money on your textbooks this term.
