Students saving money with open textbooks

I'm not sure exactly how an open textbook initiative could fail, but that said, it's still nice to see evidence of success. "British Columbia's open textbooks project already has helped almost 300 post-secondary students, who saved an average of $146 each on their textbook costs for the fall 2013 semester." So, that's a start. Saving real money for real students - I like that approach.
