where educators come to learn from one another
Thanks for responding! I had to look up what DRM means and I think I understand what you're saying, but I want to be clear. Can class set type books (like Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson, for example) not be purchased and put on multiple Kindles because of DRM? Is it possible to ever share books between Nooks the way you can with Kindles? Please forgive me as I'm a newbie at this and it's all a bit confusing. :)
Laura, the sharing is an issue only if your plan is to purchase books with DRM on them. This would include most trade books for independent reading or class sets, but not classics or other texts with no DRM. I am not a huge fan of the text to speech for kids who need a modeled fluent reading; it might be more confusing for strugglers, however cool it is. I prefer the Kindle but a lot of folks are buying Nooks and really like them. For the basic function, reading, they are both good.
I wanted to let you know that BN let me put 12 Nooks on one account! Also, you CANNOT purchase egiftcards with a purchase order! You have to bring a check!
Just an FYI for NOOK users, it is possible to purchase ebooks with a purchase order through bn.com. Our regional office has us refer schools to
