New Option for Student Shoppers: E-Books
As students at eight colleges shop for notebooks and car decals this fall, they’ll have another product to consider at the campus bookstore: electronic textbooks. But not everyone expects the e-books fly off the shelves.
The eight colleges have partnered with the wholesale company MBS Textbook Exchange to offer about 30 textbooks at 33 percent below the normal cover price. “It’s about giving students a cheaper option,” said Jeff Cohen, advertising and promotions manager at MBS.
The high cost of textbooks, which are often well over $100, has helped spawn a vibrant used book market both at college book stores and online, at sites like VarsityBooks.com, which buys and sells new and used textbooks. College officials do not think electronic textbooks are going to replace paper versions, but they are excited at the prospect of offering a cheap alternative. But some of the tactics that MBS and the stores see as necessary to make the practice viable — to avoid mass piracy, the books will only be accessible on the downloading computer, and will expire at the end of a course – are generating criticism.
