Free College Textbooks (Well, Sort Of!)

I just became aware of Flatworld Knowledge. They post open source Free College Textbooks online. Whats the catch? They are online books. You need to purchase a book if you want a hard copy. The books appear to be softcover and reasonably priced, however (around 40 dollars for the ones I looked at). Given the cost of textbooks, this type of service may have a future. I wonder if Law Schools are next.
