The problem I have is balancing my desire to read a book right away against the need to have an actual copy for the classroom. I am always adding titles to my Reading Library (bordering on addiction). It took me, I admit, months to realize a downloaded book on my tablet is not practical for students to use. I needed to have the books in hand. (My school does not have iPads, ebooks, etc. for classroom use).
It makes sense, economically, to purchase at least two classroom copies instead of putting one on my tablet. But...but that means I have to wait. Maybe a day or two, or even more. It means not clicking the button and having my book appear in seconds.
It is true that a visit to the bookstore involves a wait time of fifteen minutes. The challenge I encounter at the store is how to walk out with just one title. How can you purchase just one?
