How big is your biggest school book and how much does it weigh?

My history book is 1023 pages and weighs around 5 lbs :(
On days when i have all of my classes, i have to drag around my 30lbs (about) backpack for 7 hours. I dont get why they dont just but every student a laptop or something and have all of the books on disks. It would save so much money and be a TON easier on students and teacher. Plus it would save paper/trees.

Books are a better source of learning as your brain remembers reflected light more than it does projected light. :)

My biology book is ginormous. I just recently started using my locker, but its so far away from my classes, I have to be ready to haul ass when the bell rings.

I wish they'd let us use laptops in school. It would make life helluva lot easier. And we could all have a login on the school network so we can recieve stuff form the teacher and print stuff to each classroom's printer.

all you are lucky to have lockers. My history book is 5 pouinds or so, my chem book is about 4, my math is about 4 also... add in the novels and notebooks for English... it gets heavy... But my B day classes are all electives, so all I have is a mil history book and a psycology book, which are really really light. Thank god for saddlebags!

For paramedic I had 5 volumes of the Text, each over 1000 pages, 6 workbooks, 2 student guides, and then My ACLS text, PALS text, NRP text, and EKG workbooks. I got a rolling suitcase to carry them all around in...

Just wait until you get to college and your *&@#%$# books cost like $1500 a semester... Then you sell them back to the bookstore for $150 bucks for the lot.
