Canadian college goers, there might just be one less book tucked under your arm as you head to class this semester. Google has announced that Google Play textbooks are now coming to Canada. Students north of the border will have the option to rent or purchase digital textbooks and read them using Play Books on phones, tablets, and PCs.

As is the case in the US, textbooks aren't filtered out from other books on Google Play, so discovering them isn't as easy as it could be. Search works well though, with students able to find works by title, author, or ISBN. Google's also offering a bunch of books discounted over at play.google.com/textbooks. There's probably not a high chance that the one you need just so happens to be on that list, but hey, you never know.
