In the Mail: Looseleaf Casebooks!

In going through a 10-day backlog of mail at the office yesterday, I was psyched to receive binders containing looseleaf copies of two of my casebooks for next year: Dycus et al.'s National Security Law, and the brand-spanking-new sixth edition of Hart & Wechsler's The Federal Courts and the Federal System.

Is it just me, or are looseleaf casebooks the coolest thing since sliced bread?

It's just you: the coolest thing is pdf's of casebooks, so you can slice and dice key bits right into your lecture notes.

They may be the coolest thing since sliced bread for us but as I understand it they're even cooler for legal publishers, who apparently hope that they'll diminish the resaleability of books and thus dampen the used book market. I have no idea whether that has happened or will likely happen.
