Publisher offers textbook rentals

Cengage Learning has become first higher education publisher to let students rent print textbooks directly from the source. Renters get the first chapter online in an e-book format, then have the book shipped to them. Other companies are also taking steps in this direction.
If they can put the first chapter online, the next logical step seems like providing online access to the entire book, avoiding shipping costs and hassles.
