What is the biggest problem with eBooks?

Postby cheap-textbooks » Mon Sep 05, 2011 1:48 pm

I think the biggest problem with eBooks is the lack of availability. I looked at the top 1000 textbook as searched by students at my price comparison service (www.cheap-textbooks.com) and only 15% were available on the Amazon Kindle. The other ebook sellers were under 50% except for Coursesmart which had 82%.

The second issue that I see is the format. Will students be happy with simple PDF versions of a textbook or do they want all the interactivity that is available from some publishers. Personally I think cost will favor the PDF solution.

And the final issue is the price, they just are not that much cheaper.

What do you think?
We do not sell textbooks, we show you the cheapest sources
