As if dominating the personal e-book market wasn't enough, online mega retailer Amazon is targeting the lucrative school textbook trade too. According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, Amazon will learn this week whether its bid to supply e-books to New York City public schools will succeed.

If approved by the NYC Board of Education, the contract will reportedly be worth $30 million over a three-year period. Amazon declined to comment.
