The policy for Kindle is that one book can be shared between multiple (up to 6) Kindles. I use the Kindles for an after school book club so I want them all to have the same 5 - 6 titles. There are 12…Continue

"I sure can help you out Laura! This happened to me as well earlier in the school year but I finally figured it out. What you need to do, once you've purchased the title onto 1 Kindle, is that you need to then move that title onto the HOME…"

Ordering books for multiple Kindles--please help!

The policy for Kindle is that one book can be shared between multiple (up to 6) Kindles. I use the Kindles for an after school book club so I want them all to have the same 5 - 6 titles. There are 12 Kindles for our group.Last semester we were able to figure this out so that the secretary at the district office who has to do all the ordering for me was able to put all the books on all the Kindles (we purchased 2 copies of each book and added them to the 12 kindles online). It wasn't easy, but…See More

"We've had problems with screen breakage on the Kindle. I finally had to require all the kids in our book group to NOT put the Kindles in their backpacks. I think it was the pressure of all those books that made the screens break (as in become…"

"Rather than the school purchase lots of nooks how would this work if I have ONE nook at school with 100 titles.  Can those 100 titles be "checked out" to any nook that a student brings?  For example, if I have "Book1"…"

Kindle vs. Nook

I need some quick assistance if possible! My district is considering purchasing me some ereaders for use with a book club at my middle school. At first they were thinking Kindle, but apparently Amazon won't accept a purchase order as payment? Now they're thinking Nook. Here's my questions:*I know it's possible to purchase an ebook and put it on 6 Kindles. Is it possible to share an ebook between multiple Nooks? (the sharing option on the Nook expires after 2 weeks, I believe). *Also, how many…See More

"Excellent to know this, Linn. The more information I have on this the BETTER. And, yes, as an advocate of library use (public and school based) Amazon gets a big negatory for not opening up to this type of audience."

Linn McDonald replied to Laura Gardner's discussion Kindle vs. Nook
"Yes, Theresa, this site has been invaluable for me. We all have tight budgets, so we take this decision (deciding which ereader to purchase) very seriously. I'd like to bring another consideration into the mix: I feel that we should be…"

"Hmm, not sure why you were told you couldn't download free books from B&N. As others have said, from the NOOK you just type in $0.00 to find the free books (tons of public domain books, pages and pages of popular titles, and then occasional…"

"I just checked out the BooksShouldBeFree link and I think it's great! Browsing for books is half of the fun, but some of the free sites do not really do a good job of it."
