Textbook Update

I was doing research for my next article, and since I was already thinking of textbooks, found this from U.S. PIRG:

Students spend an average of $900 a year on textbooks—20 percent of tuition at an average university and half of tuition at a community college. Textbook prices have increased at four times the rate of inflation since 1994 and continue to rise.
Four times the rate of inflation! That is amazing.
