Unlikely. Those books are the bread and butter of many professors and publishers, so unless you are willing to shell out $$$ for a .pdf version of you currently hardback, gold-trimmed book, you probably won't be seeing any e-readable textbooks any time soon. I could also be a bit biased, in this view, because I find I do the best in class when I take notes in my books as well as in notebooks/on my computer. Many people do the "book brief" method (where you brief the case in the margins) but everyone has their own style. I personally would never go for an e-copy, even if it saved me a bundle of dough. Maybe the iPad will change all of that?
