The Kindle – Your New Text Book
When we were in school and college, we often forgot our textbooks at home or in the hostel and we sat through class with no clue of what was going on. Enter the Kindle. Amazon has launched a new service called Textbook Rental, which lets you store all your textbooks and notes in the cloud.
Amazon’s new service, which was announced today, allows students to rent their textbooks for as much as 80% off the listed price. They can rent the textbooks for a month, a year or any duration in between with additional days being charged on a per-day basis. Not only will this service allow students to make killer savings, but it will also reduce the amount of stuff they need to carry to school.
This service, along with the Kindle app which is available on all major platforms including iOS, Android, Windows Phone 7 and Blackberry, will allow students to read their textbooks and jotted notes on virtually any device. The kids today get all the cool stuff.
