Markets in Everything: Kindle Textbook Rental

"Amazon's Kindle Textbook Rental is a flexible and affordable way to read textbooks. You can rent for the minimum length, typically 30 days, and save up to 80% off the print list price. If you find you need your textbook longer, you can extend your rental by as little as 1 day as many times as you want and just pay for the added days."

One example is "Fundamentals of Financial Management" by Brigham and Houston, which has a retail list price of $186.95, sells in hardcover on Amazon for $142.27, or $107.16 for a Kindle edition, and $40.03 for a 60-day rental, $47.09 for 90 days, and $51.01 for 120 days.

For someone who has a Kindle: can I still underline and highlight text, as well as my *ing what I consider key points?

The Kindle is awesome (I'm sure the Nook is as well)! I love mine...but I can't believe the textbook mafia will allow the market operate on their bock.
There will be blood.

Oh, and, Buddy...yes! You can highlight and actually "clip" phrases, paragraphs, etc and they automatically go into a folder on the Kindle if you want for easy grabbin'.
You can also keyword-search every book in the thing at once.

There's a lot you can do on that thing that I don't even know
