Three Kindles checked out to students this morning!

I have officially gotten my pilot off the ground and checked out three Kindles to students today from the library.  They have returned a user agreement (see attachment) acknowledging their responsibilities and liability should something happen to the device, and I have a growing hold list of students.  I am only checking out the Kindles to students who are participating in our Battle of the Books and have only loaded those titles.  As students bring the Kindles back, I would like to have them…See More

If you want the book borrowing you need something other than a Kindle. There are many here who have purchased Nooks, for example, and who can help with your plan, the terms of service, and so forth. Just send questions and I will try to route them to the right people if you cannot find them directly. Best wishes for a successful pilot!
