I find it astounding that ebooks are having a difficult time penetrating the textbook market — especially seeing as Amazon is more Kindle books than paperback and hardcover combined.
I wonder if this because of resistance by textbook publishers to translate their content to a new medium or something else?
A good question Eric. So many publishers are (and have been) publishing their textbooks with digital versions online with a username/pw to access. My guess is it’s not the digital translation that is an issue but, the politics of hardware standards and maintaining a beneficial financial arrangement over the control of distribution. .. I’d be curious to hear what others think. Thank you.
