Google is coming to the rescue of those Canadian students heading back to school. Google encourages all students to “ditch the backpack” and download relevant textbooks to a mobile device or laptop from Google Play Books. The texts range in topics in both English and French, and can either be rented or purchased with a savings of up to 80% over the cover print price.
Google notes that, “You can instantly search within a textbook for a particular word or phrase, bookmark chapters and pages, highlight and annotate key passages and get quick access to dictionaries, translation tools, Wikipedia and Google search.”
