Because netbooks were never widely adopted.
It is funny how this article is mentioning what I predicted a few years ago when I got my Nook Color...lol...

The colleges aren't gonna like that. Don't they usually rip people off for textbooks? What will they do know?
Nobody likes expensive textbooks for student....profs aren't happy about this either.
Most colleges are making the first efforts to initiate the move. There are several reasons, one of which is lower costs, another is flexibility. A class textbook must be selected months in advance. A few years ago, I took a class where the instructor moved just before. I had purchased the text he had chosen, but the new instructor changed the textbook. With digital textbooks, it would be simple to download in the first day of class, with updates and instructor notes. With a local hub setup, homework can be turned in instantly. Also do not forget that books take a large amount of room and space is often at a premium on campuses.
They'll probably still get their cut by renting the e-books to the students for the length of the term.
