Massive hugs are due to my husband, who surprised me this afternoon with this!

My first Kindle book purchase is Markus Zusak's I Am the Messenger (my AP Lit kids are currently reading The Book Thief), and I'm already loving the notes, highlights, and built-in dictionary. Can I find a grant for a class set of these?


  1. Boo Hoo....we have two copies of The Messenger and they are never checked out. (I have Kindle envy.) Love your blog....I'm a stalker.

  2. Exciting! I tried the nook at Barnes and Noble and wasn't incredibly impressed, so you'll have to let me know how the Kindle works for you. :)

  3. I received 90 (yes, nine zero) Sony Touches this week for my library. I also have a budget of @ $700 for ebooks. We are going to roll them out over the next few weeks.

    The first 25 will go to our Middle School Gifted Language Arts class. The teacher already uses netbooks and wikis successfully. We are planning on using the Readers for literature circles.

    I am very excited and even more overwhelmed.

  4. @Elaine: Wow! That is exciting, indeed :) I'm interested to learn more about your work with the readers and planning to check out your blog. Thank you for sharing!
