Summertime, and the Learning is Easy

June 21, 2010 by

Mises Academy: Thomas DiLorenzo teaches The Road to Serfdom: Despotism, Then and Now

Why the re-wording of the first lyric from George Gershwin’s classic song? Two reasons:

First, for those of you who might like to read from the Mises Institute’s extensive ebook/PDF library on-the-go, this summer day might be the time for you to pick up an e-reader:

“Barnes & Noble Inc. cut the price of its Nook e-reader to $199 on Monday. Hours later, Amazon.com Inc. responded by slashing the price of its standard Kindle e-reader to $189. Both models had been $259.

Barnes & Noble also unveiled a new Wi-Fi-only model of the Nook, lacking a connection to cellular networks, that costs $149. All three moves show that competition over electronic-book readers is turning to a new battlefront: price.” (Source: Wall Street Journal)

Secondly, just imagine using all the study features (note-taking, bookmarks, highlighting, etc.) of one of these wonderful devices with your Kindle edition or Nook edition of Road to Serfdom while taking Thomas DiLorenzo’s online, five-week Road to Serfdom Mises Academy class this summer!

And only 3 days after I finally bit the bullet and bought the Sony Reader…

I too am biting the bullet and getting an e-reader. On the phone right now with customer service at B&N to see if they can actually ship the darn thing to me before I leave on vacation. Oh, the drama.
