"We have six Kindles that we loan to students here at Canterbury. Ours are in the M-Edge covers and we haven't had any problems. Our permission form doesn't specify they can't put them in backpacks because I think they are safer in a…"

"I had someone on Etsy.com make bags for the Nooks I lend out from our school library.  Students check out a bag with the Nook and they are supposed to keep it in the bag.  The bags are lined, padded cotton, so I can wash them occasionally."

"Also, if you purchase neoprene sleeves be sure to remove the little dessicant packets that are shipped inside it.  We accidentally left one in the sleeve.  Compression against the screen caused an etch-a-sketch design, wrecking the Kindle.…"

Kindles in backpacks?

      I read on Buffy's "permission to borrow a Kindle" form that students are not permitted to put the Kindles in their backpacks.  Is this standard procedure?  Where do your students store them during school when they aren't in use?    Also, should I buy the protective clear covers for the Kindle screens?  Thanks so much for your advice.        karen in VermontSee More

"Hello, Will, Yes, I am trying to decide if I should go with the Nook so I would also have access to Google ebooks, or go with Kindles which seem to really have the kinks out of the device. I would like my 7th & 8th graders to have access to…"
