Amazon has unveiled a new plan for its popular Kindle service, and this time it directly targets students. Textbooks are one of the biggest financial burdens students face as they transition from high school to college. Often, textbook prices aren't covered by financial aid or can exceed the cost of a student's living quarters for the first month. Thankfully, the proliferation of electronic media has grown to a point where textbooks are beginning to be allowed for use by students in electronic form rather than traditional print publication. The downside is that prices continue to remain very high for textbooks most often required by courses.
