What is the availabilty of eTextbooks, who offers eBooks?

Postby cheap-textbooks » Sun Sep 04, 2011 3:25 pm

Who is offering ebook textbooks? There has been a lot of news about digital textbooks including Amazons anouncement of textbooks on the Kindle. In reviewing ebooks and the pricing I notices a very small number of titles available. The Amazon Kindle Rental had only 18 of the top 100 textbooks for back to school. At cheap-textbooks.com we pull information from seven ebook sellers. They are CourseSmart, Barnes & Noble, Kno, Textbooks.com, Cengage Brain, Amazon Kindle, and eBooks.com The results? Of the top 1000 textbooks searched by students:

CourseSmart carried 82%

Barnes & Noble carried 46.6%

Kno carried 43.6%

Textbooks.com carried 24.2%

Cengage Brain carried 23.1%

Amazon Kindle (ebook purchases, not rental) carried 14.9%

eBooks.com carried 0.2%

These numbers will go up, sure, but for now, students have to continue to search for the best deal across all platforms.
