Today’s college digital book borrower is tomorrow’s digital book purchaser.
While I totally jive with the gist of this article, I would point out that my college book buying habits had zero resemblance to my personal book buying habits. I sold back 90% of my college text books had had little to no emotional attachment to any of them. That said, working with digital books during college would probably make me to be more comfortable working with them afterwards—or not. They might take me back to print (where print=reading for pleasure). Just my consumer point of view. In the end, a big thing college kids care about is cost. If digital brings cost cuts, please let’s try to make it happen.
