The students discuss two possible solutions to the man's problem. Briefly summarize the problem. Then state which of the two solutions you prefer and explain why.

1. Hey Steve, did you get that book on the Russian Revolution professor Harper wants us to read?
2. No, one of the bookstores in the campus area had it in stock.
3. They will get it in about two weeks.
4. Hmm…so what are you goona do in the meantime?
5. Remember we are going to be discussing the book starting next Tuesday.
6. Well, I was thinking of placing a rush order with a bookseller on the internet, so I'd have the book in about a day or two.
7. Yeah, but rush order delivery is expensive.
8. You could easily spend twice as much money for the book that way.
9. I know, but what choice do I have?
10. Well since we only have to read a few chapters at a time, you are welcome to share my copy for a few weeks, you know, until you can get yours at the book store.
11. You mean, you would read the chapters assigned, give the book to me, I would read those chapter then give the book back to you to read the next set of chapters, and so on?
12. Exactly.
13. Thanks!
14. But, what if I don't get the book back to you in time?
15. Wouldn't you get behind your reading?
16. Yeah, maybe, but is should work if we are careful.
