i get the impression that textbooks are really holding the industry together at this point. barnes and noble owns hundreds of university bookstores - it is definitely what is keeping them in business. but people are getting tired of paying for textbooks because of new editions that just move shit around or need online access codes. in my last two years of university i bought two textbooks, rented two, and either went without or found a pdf of the rest. many times professors list a book just because they are supposed to. but i also bought all the non-textbook books we read in honors classes and some comprehensive books i used in my thesis. not good enough to have digital copies when you are reading entire chapters to understand a concept from scratch, imo
