Volumes of legal tomes will be used to entice customers to purchase Amazon's digital reader.
Amazon.com Inc. Currently offers hefty legal books published by the Practising Law Institute for a discounted price. In addition to the cheaper price tag, the legal reference books are obviously easier to transport in their digital form. They are also being touted as time savers because they are easier to index and digitally bookmark.
According to The Wall Street Journal, legal textbooks- and textbooks of other varieties- are hoping to draw readers into the digital e-book market by offering greater convenience.
While I can see the advantages of having a legal library at your fingertips, I hope that the tangible "old-fashion" kind of books don't disappear any time soon.
