    I have family members in college and they have books on subjects that I am interested in.

  2. Donna L says:

    My daughters books are very expensive. Times are hard.

  3. Rosey says:

    Doctorate credits cost a fortune and the books run high in cost. Any aid to off-set that for this new semester is highly appreciated.

  4. loni says:

    Books are always so expensive at my school and I barely ever use them..renting might be the way to go!

  5. Amy Watts says:

    I started nursing school classes over the summer, we are middle-upper class, so generally no help whatsoever for books, tuition, etc., even though costs for returning to nursing school are not cheap.

  9. Kristine MIchelle says:

    I would use it for books for my medical and accounting classes. I just signed up for some classes at the local JC and the books are like $100+! Wow! This would be a big help.

  10. Tarah says:

    I need the $100 giftcard because I have already spent $411 from 2 new and one used book for the fall semester. $100 would make up for the cost of those books.

  11. Mike says:

    I need to win because I like to hang around college book stores and check out the hot freshman chicks. Occasionally I need to buy something so the staff doesn’t get all paranoid and stuff and that gets expensive after a while… so, a nice $100 gift card would keep me in eye candy for at least another semester 🙂

  12. Martha says:

    Because I’ll share the wealth! Grad students have gotten resourceful, and sharing books works if you plan it well! I’d be able to buy a book or two, and at least 3 other people will benefit!

  13. Debbie says:

    I have a son in college and $100 towards textbooks is an incredible help.

  14. Theresa D says:

    I would love to win this because I now have two kids in college and the books cost a great deal of money, so the $100 would help.

  15. Aleksandra says:

    I would love to win this for my little sister who is in Pharmacy school and probably spend a small fortune on books.

  16. Joy Bennett says:

    son a freshman in college…books are too expensive

  17. ky2here says:

    Because I will give this to the young lady two doors up because she can really use the help.

  18. Gerli says:

    Because my Math book ALONE costs $150 (and then I have the other 5 to worry about as well)!!!!! I’ve spent countless hours on-line trying to find some coupon/promotion code or websites where I can get my books cheaper….no success though…this Gift Card would help out A LOT!!!

  19. Marc-Andre Taillefer says:

    i need this because text books are so expensive right know.

  20. Debbie Dombrowski says:

    My youngest daughter is a freshman at Univ. of AZ on a high academic tuition scholarship. It doesnt include books though. I am a single mother we/2 daughters in college- a Realtor in a very depressed market- the gift card would be a wonderful blessing. Thank you for consideration.

  21. Ashley says:

    i need this because i am currently working on my masters degree and text books are so expensive

  22. Meredith says:

    Dear Follet,
    I am a poor college student. i thought my financial aid would cover my texts books but i was wrong. Classes start monday and I haven’t gotten any of my books :(. Please consider me for this gift card. It would help me out so much! thank you.

  23. christi says:

    If you give me the gift card, I will make and wear a handmade “FOLLETT ROCKS” T-SHIRT!!!!!

  24. Henria O. says:

    Textbooks are ridiculously expensive! This gift card would help free up money for other expenses like food and clothing, two things that students really need as well.

  25. OlyveOyl says:

    With three in college with different majors – there is always a book that must be purchased (OR MANY BOOKS). Any and all help with paying for their education is greatly appreciated.

  26. Judith says:

    I’d like to use this gift card to buy gifts for my niece who graduated (without any student debts to pay off) from the University of Winnipeg last spring – after working part-time and studying part-time for ten years. I can use the gift card to buy her souvenirs (hoodies, mugs, etc.) of her ten years as a student there.

  27. courtney says:

    i need this because my text books expired! and they are SO expensive!

  28. DANIELLE WALDO says:

    I need this because my daughter who is away at college did not get the funding she did last year due to cuts being made, she is going to get 7 thousand less this year So this would help out

  29. Rochelle says:

    My parents make little over 20,000 dollars with 3 dependents. I have to pay the balance of my school not covered by financial aid by myself. I barely have money to eat some weeks. I have sat in the bookstore and done my homework because I am so poor. My uncle stole my personal information and ruined my credit so I can’t really get loans.

  30. Greg says:

    I spent my text book money on diapers for my 1-year-old twins, because calculus books just aren’t absorbent enough.

  31. Megan H. says:

    After tuition costs and paying for the credits for two summers’ worth of internships, textbook costs are another huge burden that will put me into even more debt! This semester, I’m taking lots of heavy courses to finish up my requirements for my double major & minor, each of which requires at least 3 books each. This $100 gift card would definitely help alleviate the cost!
