eBooks Not Selling on Campus

By Deane Barker on February 16, 2006

Despite youths’ tech comfort, e-textbook demand slow: Ebooks aren’t selling well as college textbooks either.

But after making the purchase, [the student] noticed a few things amiss: He couldn’t run a highlight marker over key points or jot notes in the margins, nor could he curl up with the tome without printing out the pages.

He won’t rule out another e-book, but he’s not completely sold, either.

I had a great experience with a couple ebooks a while back, but there’s was also a great book I read once that argued against them ever hitting the mainstream.
