+ - The time for e-readers on the college campus

Submitted by OffTheLip
OffTheLip (636691) writes "A recent storm forced me into my attic for a repair but my path was blocked by many boxes filled with college textbooks, many over 25 years old. My wife and I are in professions where it seemed possible we would use the texts for research but they have remained boxed until the fateful storm. I'm sure many others are in a similar situation. With the advances in technology I see a perfect opportunity for colleges to provide required course material electronically via an e-reader such as the Kindle or the Sony offering. The authors could still claim a fee, although much less than the cost of a book, and the college could be a leader in green thinking. While this may not be practical for all materials there are plenty of use and toss coursework imposed on today's student. What do you say Slashdot readers?"
