I am about to be a junior in college and I'm looking to buy a Kindle Fire, mostly so I don't have to carry my heavy textbooks to class. ;) I'm trying to decide between the 7" or 8.9". I plan to mostly use it for textbooks, e-mail, and as a planner if any of that information is helpful. Movies/videos/games may be something I use every now and then, but that is not my sole purpose behind having the tablet.

First, you need to check and see if the textbooks you will need are offered i electronic format

You can check the Amazon App Store and see if there are apps that meet your needs.

If you need color charts or graphs I'd suggest the larger one.

If you are going to use it for text books I would go for the 8.9" model for the larger screen to see the graphs and such better.
