What have you done thanks to OpenStax College textbooks or CNX? Maybe you made an A on your first test because you didn't have to wait for a book to arrive, or maybe you saved your class $5000. Or, maybe you did something even better! 

We're looking for people to participate in our holiday video and share their experience with us. Email dmn2@rice.edu or comment below if you're interested!
