Back to School Guide: Keep Your Backpack Load Lighter with a Kindle

One of the biggest complaints I hear from my kids and their friends during the school year is ‘My backpack is so heavy!’ When you consider everything a student needs to carry around on a daily basis, it seems like a wheelbarrow might serve them better and actually hold everything they need!

When you start thinking about your Back to School needs this year, how about you mix things up a bit or think outside the box, er backpack? Did you know you can rent textbooks via Kindle Textbook Rentals? By choosing this option, you save up to 80% off textbook list prices by renting from the Kindle store, pay only for the time you need, can read it on the go anywhere and access your notes and highlights anytime. This is convenience for school work at its best!

The $79 Kindle can hold up to 1,400 books and maintains a battery life of up to one month. There are four Kindle choices in the Kindle family. Read about each of  them and how they might benefit you for Back to School below.
