I've used several eBooks for school. I attend school online and the books themselves were offered as eBooks by the school through the "VitalSource Bookshelf" software. It's not been all of the books, as a matter of fact the vast majority of my school books have been dead tree books. It hasn't been a matter of choice so much as that's how they were offered. The ones that I got as hard cover books were not offered as eBooks anywhere. The eBooks themselves were free and are still accessible to me at this point three years later. I graduate in the spring so I'm curious to see if they remain that way.
