Want to try a digital textbook, but don’t want to commit in case eBooks are not for you? Follett Higher Education Group‘s Cafe Scribe digital platform has a new sampling program for just this. The “Try Now, Buy Later” program lets students and professors test its digital textbook program for seven days.

Most of Follett’s publisher partners are participating in the program, which includes more than 10,000 titles eligible for a free trial download. Students can try the free trial program at www.cafescribe.com. The program will run through the entire Fall 2010 semester.

According to study by CafeScribe, 1 in 3 people who sample digital textbooks go on to buy an eTextbook. Cafe Scribe CEO Bryce Johnson chatted with eBooknewser earlier this summer about the growing eTextbook business. He told us that lower prices and lighter backpacks are leading to more eBook adoption on college campuses.
