Chronicle discusses Kindle and Textbooks

The Chronicle of Higher Education featured an article on the Kindle and use of it for textbooks.  Two interesting points were made.  First, many students already carry around a device that can read eBooks, their laptops.  Second, publishers want to end the used textbook market, which cuts off their profits.  By making textbooks in eBook form with licensing limiting resale, they capture the market again…..at least until students figure out a way to share them!
