The reading culture should be inculcated in a child at a tender age so that as he/she grows up, he/she is able to appreciate books. It is said that knowledge is also acquired through reading books. College education becomes effective when the child has books to make him or her go through college. The only way to go about this is to make the child know where to purchase books on sale and to go for those books that are right for his/her pocket.

The child will acquire many books, those which he might have been unable to purchase and at an affordable price.
There are sections to buy books on sale. Your child can get the used books which are still in good condition. These books are cheap and a college student will afford. There are those books that one can bargain, teach your child how to bargain so that he/she is able to get the right books that he needs. Let them desist from buying cheap books that are delivered at the door step.
The college through the help of parents can get in touch with charitable organizations to donate books to college students. This way the books can be monitored and the college will be able to trace children with books. When you donate books, the quality of life of students in college will improve. With donated books the college will be able to stock their library and students will not have problem with assignments.
