For months I have been reading Tweets, blog posts, and forum postings that divide the world into two camps- those who like e-readers and those who think they will be the end of books. I admit- I was anti-e-reader for a while. But then I got my iphone and ipad and realized the wonder of being able to carry a few books with me at all times, without the heavy pile. I took my ipad on my cruise and read something like 10 books over the course of the week. I never would have been able to carry them all with me on the plane. So I am an e-reader convert!
I also have a lot of students who move easily between e-readers and books. They have no preference, but I certainly see them reading more because their e-reader is always accessible. And how can I not love that?
Needless to say, I absolutely ADORE the new Barnes and Noble Nook commercial called “Read Forever”. We can all get along. Just read forever.
