Stores that sell textbooks with earth science subjects are Amazon, ValoreBooks and Textbooks.com. The range of subjects the textbooks cover include general earth science, geography and geology.
Amazon, ValoreBooks and Textbooks.com all offer several editions of Earth Science, a popular series of textbooks co-written by Edward J. Tarbuck, Frederick K. Lutgens and Dennis G. Tasa. These authors also produce yearly editions of geography and geology textbooks. The textbooks are published by Prentice Hall, one of the country's leading education publishers.
Each shop offers books in new and used conditions, and each offers hardcover, paperback and e-book editions. The shops also allow customers to rent new editions of textbooks for a fraction of what full purchases cost. The textbooks are sent by sent mail and can be returned for free when the customer is finished with them at the end of the school year. As of 2015, renting textbooks may save students as much as $500 per year, according to ValoreBooks.
Each shop also gives customers the opportunity to sell their used textbooks in each of the shops' marketplaces. A seller may sell his copy directly to the shop, but he can also use the shop's system to list, sell and get paid for his sale.
