Browsing through this site is a good way of generating ideas for the RSR. There are plenty of books here that may be relevant to your project and can be purchased second hand, relatively cheaply. Before settling on a purchase check your local and school library to see if the book(s) can be got for little or nothing. Also, you should consult with your teacher before making an order. If you have settled on a newly released book, try your local bookshop to see if they can supply it cheaper before making an online purchase.
