  1. Nice piece. As the parent of a kid in college I can tell you that the digital textbooks are some 40% cheaper too. Comparable to the cost of used books. I might add you can fit all four core subjects on the one reader and my daughter carries it in her handbag to school as opposed to four bulky textbooks in a spine warping backpack.
