Google Play Textbooks to Launch this August

“Google announced today during a huge event that they were creating a new eTextbook section. Diligent young scholars will be able to both rent and buy them on Android and iOS. The new service is poised to launch this August and students will be able to save 80%, compared to physical textbooks. Right now Google has locked up Pearson, Wiley, Macmillian Higher Education, McGraw-Hill and Cengage Learning. This will immediately give students access to hundreds of textbooks right out of the gate. Students can also search bookmarks, highlight, and switch to a “night mode” so as not to disturb a sleeping roommate.” (via Good E-Reader)
