    Conservative E1. I felt exactly the same way. For a person who touts advanced learning, there were many things that were inconsistent and quite miraculous. Interesting read, but not entirely believable or without guile.

    If you're #800 on the list don't worry, this book, "Educated", is not worth reading. There is plenty to be skeptical about. She came from a difficult childhood it seems. but there are plenty of things she relates that are disputable. Some things she says does not even seem plausible. Rather than reading this book with a grain of salt, I'd read it with a mountain of salt.

    @Gavidaae Excess copies of digital books? That's a first! Just kidding, I know what you mean. But still kind of interesting to think about. Maybe they can sell digital licenses as well, $1.99? I think people would buy. I am a sucker for $1.99 kindle books.

    What happens to the digital licenses when demand slows down? With a physical copy you can resell them; our local library has a book sale once a year, but what about those excess copies of digital books when demand decreases?
