It’s that time of year! Has your opinion about e-books changed? Are you still paper or die?
Let’s get these bad boy caveats out of the way:
- Yes, I understand this isn’t a scientific poll
- Yes, it’s further unscientific-like to compare between years when my blog readership may have changed
- Yes, I know you want more poll options because no option here precisely captures your view. Choose the one that’s closest!

I have been for years now. I also mostly check out e-books from the library. It’s so convenient and I don’t have to worry about where to store physical books. I do miss being able to lend people books though.
Interestingly, my kindergartener’s reading curriculum–which is new to the district this year–relies solely on reading ‘books’ on the computer. It doesn’t use physical books at all. *That* I find strange.

I agree. Kids need to be taught a love of reading that’s disconnected from playing with digital gadgetry that’s often destructive of growing minds. They need to focus on fixed pictures and words on a page. It’s not good to condition them to always expect animation and sound.
