Amazon May Bring Textbooks To Kindle


Posted July 18, 2008 - By Patrick Roche-Sowa

It recently broke on the internet that Amazon is  about to release two new models of their digital book reader, the Kindle; one smaller, more compact version, and another version with a much larger screen.

When the news broke on Crunchgear, a couple commenters pointed out that the larger version would be perfect to take on the college/university textbook market, which brings in $5.5 billion a year. This would appear to be a no-brainer, considering one of the biggest text book publishing companies, McGraw-Hill Education, publishes 95% of their titles digitally as well as in print.

This could not only save the arm muscles of many achademics, but it could save countless trees, cut production costs, save students money, and make the yearly text-shopping clusterf**k almost managable. For now, there has been no official announcement from Amazon regarding and textbook releases, but with that kind of industry in the wings, we think it's only a matter of time.
