I have a web site where I give advise on penny stocks and stocks under five dollars. Let me make a suggestion about text books on line and off. With all the major corporations raving any ranting about the subpar value of education in the united states why not have these major corporations who are great beneficiaries of the private and public unversity systems set up a trust fund for all the private and public unversities so their students can get a payment to pay for some of the high cost of their text books. In other words major corporations should put their money where their mouth is.
