Men and women do similar amounts of household chores.

A reader sent me a video segment from the Today show discussing a study showing that married men are spending slightly more time at household chores than married women without children: 8 hours and 11 minutes for men vs. 8 hours and 3 minutes for women. With women with children, they did only 20 minutes more than men. Note the male suck-up in the video who says the bad rap against men is justified. Even when presented with evidence to the contrary, he can't keep from criticizing his fellow man. Though I don't typically use the term "mangina," I think this man fits the bill.

The video is here--just click on where it says, "You may not want hubby to read this"

Textbook Rental on Amazon Kindle

I just saw on Fox Business that you can now rent textbooks on the Kindle. I went over to Amazon to check it out and read this:
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.

Given the price of textbooks these days, this seems to be a great idea. Where was this when I was in college?
