Reading is FUNDAMENTAL….yes I said it!!! Reading is the basis for all learning. An EFFECTIVE reader can succeed in any content area. We all know how easy it is to go to your local library, bookstore, or media center to pick up your favorite book, but how has technology affected your choices? The new eBook reader is an electronic device that makes it possible for you to read tons of books from a digital, personal device. The two most popular eBook readers are the Nook and the Kindle. Tell me, do you think that this new “technology-at-your-fingertips” will cause people, mainly students, to STOP reading books and utilizing their resources at the local library OR do you think books(paperbacks and hardcovers) will continue to be processed, read, and loved by avid readers? Even if reading is not your favorite pastime, tell me which you would prefer, be specific,and support your position. FYI…there has already been talks of replacing school books with eBook readers in the near future….
