iPad a Threat to College Bookstores?

The increase of digital textbooks has become a threat to sales at college bookstores. There is a fear that, with the invention of the iPad & other electronic reading devices, students will be visiting the bookstores on campus less frequently.


Bookstores have already been seeing a decline in sales with the ability of the students to purchase their textbooks from independent online booksellers. Publishers, such as McGraw-Hill produce physical textbooks as well as e-books. They also have their own online learning portal, & have developed apps for the iPhone. It seems that even publishers are moving into this digital age. In the end, college students are the ones that will be able to choose how they want their textbooks and bookstores will have to find ways to adjust to the changes.
