I'm looking forward to the day when I can carry all of my statistics
books on my Kindle, but that won't happen anytime soon. For what it's
worth, the Kindle is very nice, but most of the books for it are not free.
With a free textbook, you get what you pay for, of course. A notable
exception is the Engineering Statistics Handbook. It is free because it
was developed by government employees.
Some authors have also negotiated an agreement with their publisher to
make a textbook freely available once it has been out of print for a
while. An example of this is "Applications, Basics, and Computing of
Exploratory Data Analysis" by Velleman and Hoaglin.
There was also an effort to develop a statistics textbook for the
typical introductory college class using a collaborative effort and an
open source license, but I can't find the details of this project.
