Textbook publishers report that digital sales have outpaced print

Major education publishers have reported that digital textbook sales have surpassed print for the first time.

There are questions about the accuracy of the announcement though, reported Inside Higher Ed, as critics point to the ambiguity in distinguishing between sales of the two formats, especially when print textbooks and digital material are bundled together. Publishers are eager to transition to digital sales to initiate direct sales with students to reduce costs.
