We've been using editions of Inquiry Into Physics / Vern J. Ostdiek and Donald J. Bord for most of the past twenty years. It's not a bad textbook by itself, but it has gotten increasingly more expensive and it no longer meets the needs we have for the course.
For Fall of 2015, we are switching to the OpenStax College Physics Textbook from Rice University.
The text is the same -- the only difference is the quality of the graphics and images.
If you can, do your downloads on campus. I was able to use the campus WiFi, tsunami, and download the high res version onto my Amazon Kindle Fire HD in SIX SECONDS. Your mileage may vary, especially once students get back and Fall begins. (grin)
