Textbook Relief for Florida College Students


via Consumerist

Good riddance to the $600 a semester textbook bills!

The board that oversees Florida’s state universities has launched a program that will offer free online textbooks to students; the program makes printed books available as well, for about half the price that students now pay every semester.

The program, called Orange Grove Texts Plus, surveyed students and found that about a third said they were comfortable reading ebook versions of textbooks, while about a quarter said they wouldn’t like it at all. By going digital, they      offer a free alternative to low-income students or those who don’t mind off a computer screen, while still offering discount pricing on print versions for everyone else.
