    There is so much to like about e-readers. The ease of purchasing books from whenever and wherever, the ability to carry dozens of books in one little tool etc. etc but something that has occured lately that is yet another recommendation for them. My grandson is a typical eight year old, he is fortunate to have a family who love books and has been familiar with them forever. He likes books but he and his brother “Love” their electronic games. My Kindle is a mixture of both and not only does he now read the children’s books that I have uploaded for him but he makes notes and highlights, he looks up words in the dictionary and can’t get enough of it. Congratulations to all the authors who have been receptive and savvy enough to sell their books in e format and to the self publishers giving us all more choice.

    Diane, you are so right. It is excellent news for children. I think what I like about this is that as a child, books were only available when they were passed around the family, or christmas came around and santa brought annuals,lol. Children love gadgets and access to an eReader will ensure the tradition of reading books continues.

    I just hope that when prices reduce, more families will have them. I think back to packing my own daughters school bag and the weight she had to carry around. Here’s hoping they catch on in schools.The interactive nature of the eReaders should stimulate interest in reading.

    Makes you wonder if Amazon aren’t missing a trick really and should be looking at a children’s e reader specially formated for them and maybe a special function for accessing curriculum reading material and quizes and such like. It would be safer than the internet sites and yet could be interactive. hmmmmmm wonder if they have thought of it.
