Kids in our school are divided on using e-books instead of regular books. Here are a few pros and cons that might help you decide on what you might like:

Kids who like e-books said they are easy to use and carry. They like that they are saving paper and that they are now easy to access at their local and school libraries.

Kids who don't like them said that they are hard on their eyes. They also mentioned that a few kids have broken their e-readers or they don't like having to charge them up.

Kids who said they will stick with regular books said one of the best things is how easy it is to cite text for papers. Others say they are just so much easier to read.
