Most College Kids Prefer Print Textbooks To eBook Textbooks


America’s college students are generally considered to be among the most technologically savvy groups within American society, but apparently they are not sold on all technology just yet. A new study shows that 75% of college students still prefer print textbooks over eBook versions.

The survey was conducted by the Book Industry Study Group and found that the vast majority of college students prefer print textbooks because of the look and feel of print text. Fans of eBook texts were not missing from the survey however as nearly 12% favored eBooks over print textbooks.

Those in favor of eBooks were predominantly male and most of them were enrolled in MBA or distance learning courses. Among the reasons they favored eBooks were convenience and lower cost.
