One thought on “Barnes & Noble, Sony, and OverDrive to Sell UC Press E-books

  1. This is a great strategy. eBooks are “new-ish” and what better way to get them marketed quickly than to start with students? Students tend to be very responsive and react with a lot of carefully weighted perception to new technologies and once they catch the trend, the general public follows suit. I just wish my own college CMU would do this and cut my (paper) textbook costs some.
