McGraw-Hill to Make 100 Educational Titles Available for Kindle
McGraw-Hill Education is making over 100 educational titles available for the Kindle ebook reader. The titles will be bestsellers in subjects such as science, economics, foreign languages, and business.
More than 3,000 McGraw-Hill Professional titles (business, medical and technical) are already available in Kindle format.
This fall, Amazon will use the McGraw-Hill content in its on-campus trial programs to make Kindle DX devices available to students. Participating colleges and universities will distribute hundreds of the devices to students across a range of academic disciplines.
Ed Stanford, president of McGraw-Hill Higher Education, said, "The modern student body increasingly requires digital access and capabilities, and we are pleased to be strengthening our partnership with Amazon to help meet these critical needs."
Ebooks continue to show growth in readership and the ebook format wars are in full swing. This is good news for Amazon.com which wants the Kindle to the ebook viewer of choice.
