Damage to ereaders?

Hello everyone,We recently purchased six Nooks to loan to our students through the library.  We are about to begin our program.  Students and their guardians sign a permission slip to borrow a Nook.  I'm wondering if anyone doing a similar program has run across any problems with damage to ereaders?  What do you do when a student breaks or loses a Nook/Kindle?  Are parents responsible to pay for the device?Thanks for any information,JoannaSee More

purchasing books for Kindle

Hello,I am looking for some creative suggestions for purchasing eBooks for kindles.  Our district just purchased three to pilot in the high school, but now the business office director is concerned about how books would be purchased for the device and has threatened to return them.  He does not want me having access to the corporate Amazon account. Any ideas or descriptions of what you do would be welcomed.Joanna ArkansSee More
