Students can now rent e-textbooks for periods from 30 to 360 days.
E-book textbook rentals have just been introduced by Amazon just in time for the fall semester. This will allow students to save up to 80 percent on some titles. E-textbook rentals can be viewed not just on Amazon’s e-reader (and rumored Amazon tablet) but also on any device that can download the Kindle app including PCs, iOS devices, and Android phones and tablets. The rental option isn’t available for general interest e-books, just e-book versions of textbooks.
