Google Play Adds Textbooks– Now Available In The Google Play Books App

google play textbooks

There are a lot of a great options for finding cheap textbooks online. Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iTunes and Chegg are among some of the biggest online textbook sellers out there, but now there is a new place to check out– Google. Google has added the ability to buy and rent textbooks right from the books section of their Google Play Store. Just like with Amazon and Barnes and Noble, you’ll be able to read these digital textbooks right from the Google Play Books app on your iOS or Android phone/tablet as well as from any computer by going to Google’s online Play Store and signing in.

Google advertises that they will be selling digital textbooks at up to 80% off the price of the equivalent print versions, though as with Amazon and other online textbook sellers we don’t expect this to always to be true for every textbook. As usual you’ll probably be best off looking around at multiple sites to find the best deals for the particular textbooks you need. But hey, with school starting up again in just a few weeks any ways we can save some moeny on textbooks sounds worth trying to us.

You can check out Google’s new textbook section of the Play Store here.
