Princeton to publish Kindle versions of textbooks

More good news for the Amazon Kindle ebook reader: Princeton University is preparing to publish electronic textbooks designed for the Kindle.

In addition to being able to carry around 200 or so books/textbooks, students using the Kindle version of textbooks will also be able to search the books for words as well as highlight important text and even add their own notes.

Princeton plans to publish hundreds of textbooks for the Kindle and make them available from the Kindle’s online store. They won’t be priced much cheaper than their hardcopy counterparts, but for the convenience of having an electronic, searchable version of textbooks that don’t throw out your back when you pick up a bag full of them it’s worth it.
