Advertising Comes to Textbooks

Freeload Press is offering free e-textbooks that include ads from such sponsors as FedEx Kinko's. Washington Post writes, "St. Paul-based Freeload's numbers are modest so far: 25,000 users have registered and 50,000 books have been downloaded, for courses at schools ranging from community colleges to the University of Michigan. But the company says it is rapidly adding titles and will have 250,000 textbooks and study aids in circulation by next year. It has also signed agreements with three small, specialty publishers to make their textbooks available the same way, and is in negotiations with others."
