    The Kindle Lending Library might be the best thing $AMZN has ever done. Very cool. But, man, I hate to see libraries go down with bookshops.

    • Rocco Pendola: That would be great. The textbook publishers rape students year-in, year-out. Assuming eBooks bring prices down, make updates cheaper.

    • mj0730: The e-textbooks aren't any cheaper, and you don't have the ability to sell them back, making them more expensive than print.
