Thanks in advance!

I'm a little confused about what you are asking for here.

I want all of these in Logos, so that the next person that takes the same class(es) can simply buy them here, rather than from Amazon, or some competitor.

I've given up on having the books I need for class, while I'm in the class. But I am hopeful that those that follow me may have more success with that.

EDIT: The suggested/required/pick a subject and buy all the related texts - are instructions from the professor - not me. I simply copied, pasted, and added space between titles for clarity.
