Kindle Texts

Amazon is smart!

And thanks to their intelligence, college students now have even more access to knowledge.

On Monday, the online retail giant announced that students everywhere can now rent tens of thousands of textbooks from its online Kindle store.

OMG. Where the hell was this when WE were in college!?!

Amazon's prices are 80% cheaper than list prices.

Not only are they going to save tons of money, they're also going to save some serious strain on their backs!

Kids these days… are luck-eee!

    YOU went to college? You can't spell or put together a basic sentence!

    I don't remember my college professors calling us kids or telling us to turn to a certain page.

    Ugh. I feel so sad for my grandkids. I don't have any yet, as my daughter is only 5, but at this rate, they will never know what it's like to open up a good ol' fashioned book for a good reading on a rainy day. They'll just bust out their 'Kindles'……we are so lazy and it's getting worse and worse and we're doing nothing to stop it. Nothing. We're nothing but a bunch of fools.

    Thank goodness someone out there has discovered a way to not only make money for themselves but to help decrease the ever rising costs of college. I say THANK YOU!

    But - can you highlight passages & write in the margins etc. - I used to beat the hell out of my college textbooks. I just can't picture myself trying to study with one of those things. The more technology introduced to make our lives easier, the more it makes them complicated. Sad times.

    To all of the college comments: Perez went to NYU. He got a Bachelor's Degree, and he studied acting. Because of this, Perez is officially eligible to be a sperm donor. So for now on, I will make sure to take out my taser if I ever see a big-boned toddler with pink hair; one Perez in this world is enough.
