Austin Peay State University is a public institution of higher education in Clarksville, Tennessee. Founded in 1927, the school currently enrolls about 10,000 students. The official school colors are red and white, and the athletic teams are called the Governors. Austin Peay students have a few options when it comes to buying their textbooks. These are the best places to look for books:

The APSU Bookstore is the official textbook provider of Austin Peay State University. It is housed inside the Catherine E. Harville Building at 601 College Street and is located in the heart of campus. This store carries all of the materials students need to succeed in their courses. This includes new and used books for purchase, books for rent, and digital books. Other items include school supplies, graduation items, novelties, Governors athletic apparel, and a variety of general books and novels. Most of these can be purchased and shipped to you through the store’s website. In addition, you can sell back your used books to the store for a decent rate if you purchased them there. When you shop here, you can be assured that you are getting the correct items and the exact versions of the books your professors require.

There is a Books-A-Million store in downtown Clarksville at 125 South Hampton Place. This store has an inventory that comprises a wide range of books, hence the word “million.” Books-A-Million is known nationally for its quality and customer service. You will find lots of academic books and some textbooks here, but you can buy even more on the store’s website. You can also buy a number of digital textbooks online through the store.

Since there are only a few bookstores in Clarksville that sell and rent college textbooks, be sure to do some shopping online for them. Use Textbooks.org to compare prices on books for sale or on books for rent. By shopping online, it’s quick and convenient to pull up a list of all the places that sell the books on your list. You can then see which place has the cheapest ones depending on whether you are looking to buy or rent them. More websites are offering rental programs, so be sure to check those out as well since you can save a lot by renting. It is also a smart idea to see which books on your list are available in a digital format since these books often cost less, too, if you don’t mind reading your books on your computer or tablet.
