If I'm using a textbook to learn something (rather than a reference) I'm going to want the print version, though. Flipping from the problem sets to the chapters is a nightmare with scrolling single pages and the limited PDF readers we have on our computers and portable devices; I'm almost tempted to write a new document reader that understands that people don't want a mile-high (or, ok, a half-mile high with dual view) scrollable pagination for whatever they want to read. You can highlight in textbooks too, or at least put in sticky notes for important pages. The customization options in PDF readers today are incredibly clunky and tacky in my experience; there's no nice reader I know of that just gets it right.
