College Text Books - A Different Lesson Learned

As many of you may already know college textbooks are very expensive. My son Brian called me last week that his $130 math text book was missing. He said he tries to remember to always check his backpack before he leaves a class to make sure he isn't missing anything. Anyway, his class was on Tuesday and when he went a day or two later to look for his book for the next class he discovered it wasn't anywhere to be found. The bad thing was that he had not written his name/cell # or had any distinguishing marks in the book. I spoke to a man in charge at the campus bookstore and he said that one of those books had been turned in for resale but without anyway to identify it as his he didn't know if he would be able to do anything for him. (I told him he did still have his original receipt.) He told me the name of the detective he works with on the campus police force and told my son to report the incident to him. If the book in question was turned in by a person that didn't have, or doesn't now have the class they might be able to do something.

Meanwhile I told Brian to write his name and cell # in all his books on the inside front cover and to additionally make a distinguishable marks on certain pages on everyone one of his books.
He has since filed a report with the campus police.
