One of the things I remember most about my last year of college were the three massive books I had to carry from one end of campus to the other. I felt like I was in boot camp trying to make the trek with all that weight in time for class to start.
College students may soon no longer have to schlep books around if they opt for the Kindle and their college uses McGraw-Hill textbooks. The two companies announced an alliance that will introduce the higher education textbooks to the Kindle market.
The agreement will see over 100 new higher learning text books covering business, economics, science, math, humanities and more. Connected from McGraw-Hill will be used in the Amazon on-campus trial programs this fall.
