Buy digital textbooks. You can save a third or more of the cost of a hardback textbook by purchasing a digital book. Despite the fact that today’s college students are more technologically savvy than ever, the digital textbook market is only a sliver of the $9 billion industry for new and used textbooks. According to the National Association of College Stores, digital books make up about 3% of textbook sales. But that figure is expected to grow to between 10% and 15% by 2012 as e-books and e-readers grow in popularity.  This fall, Follett Higher Education Group, which provides bookstore services and supplies used books nationwide, is unveiling its updated CafeScribe platform, compatible with Macs, PCs and most web-enabled devices like tablets and smart phones.  “Follett knows today’s students are facing overwhelming education costs,” says Thomas Christopher, President of Follett Higher Education Group. “Our variety of affordable choices helps every student be successful.”
