You can now rent or purchase some popular textbook titles for Amazon's Kindle.
If a Kindle version of a book or textbook is available for rent or sale we display a message in our search results. We cannot display the rental price or for sale price, you will need to click through to Amazon to find it.

We did a quick check of some popular textbook titles available on Kindle and found that the Kindle version is often more expensive than ebook options from Coursesmart or Barnes and Noble. Of course this could change over time.

We now search over 10 bookstores for ebook options! For most books if an ebook option is available we will show the ebook option if you search for the paperback or hardcover ISBN. You can also use our ebook specific search to narrow your results to only ebooks.

New - Brand new, never been used book. Usually the highest priced type of book. Should contain all supplemental materials like CD ROMs and access codes.

Used
- Will have cover creasing, some highlighting and page marking (depending on condition). Be sure to check the listing description before buying a used book. Some used books are in great condition and some are ... more »
