2015: 25% of US College textbooks will be digital


Only 1 in 4 ? Not enough!

If you tell me I have to buy a Kindle, Nook, EReader or tablet freshman year and books will be available through that system, i would jump at it. One of the most prohibitive things about being in a walkable environment like a college campus is carrying around heavy, cumbersome books. Let alone when you grabbed the wrong book on the way out of your dorm.

I would have killed to have my iPad or Galaxy tab or Smartphone every time I had to lug that behemoth Trancendentals book around. Also I would have killed to be able to pay half price for all my books or just download all my laboratory instruction “texts” (aka overpriced pamphlets) that I could never sell anyway.
