Books bite the dust

Reading and writing and 'rithmatic . . . all to the tune of a KINDLE! Our local high school has opted to ditch books and give each student a Kindle instead. (Textbooks cost between $70-90 a pop--if each student has six or seven, getting a Kindle is a no-brainer).

You can read the article here.

The article says that parents can purchase insurance--something I would STRONGLY advise. What if a kid is pushed into a pool? LOL--a pool would ruin a book, too, but it will definitely kill a Kindle.

It's going to be an interesting year of adjustment. :-)

Interesting! I guess it makes sense. I wonder how much the textbooks cost electronically.

If this had existed in college, I wouldn't have got tendonitis from all those nursing books!

Well, it will certainly lighten up their backpacks!
