Interesting. I am a big Kindle fan but admit there are definitely some reading tasks (like flipping back to re-read a passage) that are better with a paper book.

Professors at seven universities around the nation, including Arizona State University, tested the wireless e-reader in a pilot project over the past year. All reported that although students liked not lugging books around, the Kindle posed significant challenges that sometimes frustrated students and interrupted studying.

via Amazon Kindle no threat to college textbooks, professors say.
