Shun the chain stores and run to Oxfam for your course material. You can guarantee that someone else will have offloaded last year's reading list, meaning that you can pick them up for a bargain price and plagiarise from their margin scribblings. You also get the added benefit of knowing your purchase is helping someone less fortunate somewhere in the world. And Itchy needs all the karma brownie points we can get. Maybe now we can finally forget about that regrettable incident involving the uni hockey team, a domestic tortoise and a packet of fish fingers.
