Concerning the cost of books, a friend of mine paid @$159.00 (plus tax) for his Anatomy & Physiology textbook and I paid $20.00 (plus tax) for a Japanese calligraphy set that I needed for my language class (I could've paid $35.00 [plus tax] for the language tapes to go along with everything else, but I figured eating was a tad more important than language tapes.). By the way, 5.6% sales tax for everything but food and some medicines here in Milwaukee.
