Dang it. This sounds cool and all, but if you're an aspiring author, like me, this whole concept really makes my financial future look bleak.
I used to think so too, but I just had to move, and with over 600 books in my library, in all kinds of shapes, sizes, weights, and conditions, hauling those many, many boxes of books reminded me insistently that this is the digital age, and perhaps my library should start reflecting that.Greg Tito said:I would miss my bookshelf, though. The Kindle is a great device, but it's no substitute for the look and feel of a well made book.
ikr i'm almost a month behind on school work because i can't afford the prices for textbooks. if i could get the recent additions of the textbooks and only have to drop 50 here and there for online access codes I would gladly do this. Save me hundreds!carletonman said:Now if they managed to put textbooks on this service, I'd gladly plunk down the $80 or so for this service. Considering I had to fork over a disgusting amount of money for school books, anywhere I can save money is a bonus.
