When I went to college, most of the "textbooks" were what the prof wrote 
on the chalkboards during lecture. I didn't actually spend much on 
textbooks - few were required, and the rest I picked up used. I still 
have them.

The current scheme is so blatantly disrespectful of their customers 
(students) I don't see how it can persist.
