Definitely books. I don't drink, so obviously I've spent no money whatsoever on beer.

Probably beer. I only spend at most $450 on books. That's not a whole lot of beer, especially over 4 months and especially at a bar.

Well, I only needed one book for this semester, and that was only £15. I think I probably spent more than that on beer in the first week of this semester.

Hmm, well I think I spent about £100 per semester on books, so beer, definitely.

It's pretty close, but I think books wins out by a couple dollars.

We have the textbook rental system, so I don't pay anything, except for about 60 dollars for extra books that I need, so I spend more money on liquor (because I don't drink beer).
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 3/27/05 - 4:36:19 PM EST (GMT-5)

Well, I graduated last fall, but I spent $1500.00 on books. I don't think I spent that much on beer.
