    thanks, rhona. i will be going back after i get my children from school. it may not have taken but an hour or so to wait, but just didn't feel like standing when there is an option to complete things later today.

    What books do you need for your first semester? I only needed two textbooks plus three "coursepacks." Basically charging you for a bundle of Xeroxed pages. My books were Fundamentals of Nursing by Potter (& somebody else I can't remember) and the Davis Drug Guide for Nurses.

    I, too, was like a kid at Christmas - all excited to get my books. I couldn't wait to get them home and browse through them. Check back with me in about two months and I'll probaby laugh at myself for wanting to skim textbooks as a leisure activity!

    You know...at my school, I have NEVER had to wait in lines.
    Books are bought at the book store on certain dates, financial aid is sent straight to the school....
    Guess I'm kinda lucky...I can't stand waiting in lines!
    Hope you get it all straightened out soon!
