Amazon Textbook Rentals For Kindle, iPad

I remember looking forward to returning my textbooks not only because the final was finally over, but also that I would be getting some beer money for the weekend. Times have changed now that Amazon unveiled a textbook rental service for the Kindle eReader. Rental periods are as short as 30 days and can be extended in single day increments.

I would assume that this rental program will include the option to buy for the remainder of the list price. Being limited to the original value is certainly a good idea, one that was missed by video rental and library book late fees.
