Zinio adds textbooks to its e-magazines offering

I've received yesterday an email from the Read Green Initiative (http://goreadgreen.com/) which announces that Zinio is now offering textbooks along with the digital magazines subscriptions.

Excerpt from the mail :
Quote:
Zinio Offers College Students a Digital Alternative to Traditional Textbooks
As colleges and universities nationwide begin their spring semesters, students preparing to spend hundreds on textbooks for their spring classes now have a cost-effective and sustainable digital alternative with Zinio. Available at www.textbooks.zinio.com.
Digital textbooks give you:
50% off the same printed book prices with $0 shipping!
Immediate access, buy it late and still have it on time.
Archive/store on your laptop - no need to lug heavy books around campus.
Read online or offline and click through to hyperlinks referenced inside.
Highlight and take virtual notes to mark important information.
Search inside your book - save time by searching for specific content.
Here is the URL of this service :
http://www.textbooks.zinio.com/

Zinio is offering the magazines in a proprietary format, you can either read them online or download them and view them through a proprietary viewer.
Their reader software is available for Windows and Mac, I haven't see it yet for Linux (which doesn't mean it isn't available).
