Book or eBooks: Which is Best for Me?
Books or eBooks, which is best for me? At Grapevine, we give you choices for how to buy our books, but sometimes that can be confusing. In order to help you decide which format is right for you. Let’s define the relevant terms and then look at the options you have to choose from.
Books: These books are printed in hard copy and will be either softbound or 3-hole punched loose-leaf pages ready for your binder. The format varies depending on the product.
- Student Books: Our student books come 3-hole punched. It is easier for the students to draw with a flat sheet of paper rather than trying to draw over the hump of a bound book.
- Teacher Books: Currently, our teacher books come in both formats, noted in the description, either softbound or 3-hole punched. In surveying our teachers, they prefer their books in softbound. We are in the process of transitioning all our teacher books into softbound, but until then, some are still in the 3-hole punched format.
- Copyright: Grapevine physical books may not be legally copied or scanned. If you would like to make a legal copy of one of our books, please see the ebook options available.
eBooks: These books contain the exact same pages as the physical printed books, but in a digital PDF format.
You can use ebooks to save money by printing your own books. Ebooks are also a great choice for those living outside the continental United States.
- Teacher eBooks:
- You are permitted to print a copy of the book for one teacher
- Reselling a book you have printed is not permitted
- Student eBooks:
- Family License: permission to print copies of the book for your immediate family members. Great for large families!
- Small Class License: permission to print up to 10 copies for your class.
- Large Class License: permission to print up to 30 copies for your class.
- All licenses are non-transferable
- Reselling a book(s) you have printed is not permitted
