19:16:56 PeggyG -> how fun!! Oscar and Dave!
19:18:18 John G -> Because library patrons NEVER actually buy their own books. Very short sighted.
19:18:43 PeggyG -> they have similar limitations on sharing Kindle books
19:21:00 PeggyG -> can lend Kindle books once for a period of 14 days and the lender can't read the book during the load period...

19:21:53 mcgillhorn -> Hi
19:22:02 JohnS -> talking about libraries and e-books.
19:22:29 mcgillhorn -> excellent...looking for all I can on ebooks
19:24:05 PeggyG -> they would make money on me because I would subscribe and then not take advantage of it due to lack of time to read
19:24:55 John G -> Netflix. A set monthly price and I can watch anything they have.
19:25:11 PeggyG -> yes John G--same model :-)
19:25:49 John G -> Ed books will always exist because they will be assigned reading :-)

19:37:17 PeggyG -> 3 paid people to facilitate a single course?
19:39:15 John G -> Good point Peggy.
19:41:59 John G -> Good point, Jen. How many of these third party/cloud apps will still be there in 6 mo, a year, etc.
