Looking to simplify the back to school process for your college student and save money? One option might be to rent digital textbooks. Gone are the days of lugging around hundreds of pounds of expensive textbooks that you will sell back for a fraction of the price. Last year Amazon.com announced the launch of Kindle Textbook Rental–now college students can save up to 80% off textbook list prices by renting from the Kindle Store. Tens of thousands of textbooks are available for the 2012 school year. You can read them right on your Kindle, or use the Kindle app on your smartphone or computer to access your textbooks. Plus, renting digital textbooks is not only simpler, it is environmentally friendly too. Students can find details about the program at Amazon Textbooks.
Some of the benefits of using Kindle Textbooks:
- Great savings: Save up to 80% off the list price of the print textbook
- Pay only for the time you need: Choose a rental length between 30 and 360 days and pay only for the exact time you need a book. Extend your rental for as little as one day or convert to a purchase.
- Rent once, read everywhere: Rent and read tens of thousands of textbooks on PC, Mac, Kindle, or your mobile device
- Keep your annotations: Access your notes and highlights anytime, even after the rental expires, at kindle.amazon.com
Kindle Textbook Rental offers the ability to customize rental periods to any length between 30 and 360 days, so students only pay for the specific amount of time they need a book. Students can also easily extend any rental period in increments as small as one day or choose to purchase the book they are renting at any time. Just like with Kindle books, Kindle Textbooks are “Rent Once, Read Everywhere” as they can be read across the most popular devices with free Kindle Reading Apps for PC, Mac, iPad, iPod touch, iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Phone and Android-based devices.
