The federal government has too much money.
Our local library has purchased Nooks and Kindles. Again, government has too much money.
What the heck is the point of that?
I have a Nook, and it's a great consumer device, but what the heck does a library need with one? You could fill one up with Project Gutenberg-type works, but there is still no point to it, because you can do that just as well from a computer.
Are they lending Nooks?
