I checked with the campus bookstore and Hearing the Movies is running between $31 (semester rental) to around $52 (used purchase). Since so many of you are worried about financially committing to the course prior to ensuring that you have a spot, I photocopied next week’s reading assignment and put it on reserve in Cook Library. (Scanning wasn’t possible since the division’s copy/scanner is broken until further notice.)
From what I know, the bookstore has a generous returns policy. You have until August 31st to return books for courses you don’t plan to take.
tl;dr a copy of the reading for next week is on reserve in the library.
