The article reports on the net sales increased of college textbooks in the U.S. The double-digit hike was due to a 6.8% increase in gross sales to $294 million and 7.4% decline in returns. Its third consecutive month decline in returns still could not offset the increases in returns earlier in the year, as year-to-date returns were up 5.3% to $727.6 million from $690.9 million in the same nine-month period in 2005.
