    I did something similar with my Med/Surg book, but I just had it 3-hole drilled and put it in a 4" binder, then I would pull the chapters that were to be covered for each section and place them in a 1" binder to take with me to class and for reading. It accomplished two things, one, it was a LOT lighter to carry AND it made my reading look not quite so daunting. If I remember correctly it cost me about $8 for Kinko's do do that. Once I did that, I didn't have to carry a backpack or roller bag at all, just a small canvas bag with my binder, highlighters, note pad and pens/pencils.

    I never really carried a backpack around, only something that was big enough to atleast handle my biggest book which was always the MED-SURG book. During clinicals i left ALL my books and notes in my car. Just in case the day didnt go as planned. I remember one day for med-surg clinicals we spent our entire day in the balcony of a LTCC because there was a discrepancy with scheduling. Luckily I had books that my instructor used for reviewing material.
