iPad and etextbooks

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I am going to college here soon and I would like to buy the majority of my books on the internet and use them on my iPad. I looked at coursesmart and they let you buy the book but it only allows you to keep it for 180 days...this Is unacceptable. I would like to have it indefinitely. if anyone knows of any service that sells college text books please let me know.

Thanks,

You can download any format of ebook from your choice of site and use Calibre to convert it properly for the iPad. Wife uses it for all of her books that she can't get in the app store on her iPad.
