As a writer, this is a hot topic for me. Fellow blogger, Ask a Tech Teacher, posted this discussion about digital books from a teacher’s perspective. This one’s from Computer World–a bit extreme to burn all the books, but read it and you’ll get their not-quite-as-revolutionary point.
Digital books are a no-brainer. Demand is there. We just have to deliver them at a price point that makes sense for users. Blackberries, IPhones, Palm are all great ideas. They have ample storage capacity for dozens of books–as many as any student requires for the year. Huzzah to Blackberry for coming up with an app that converts their system into a reader. It benefits all of us and will certainly force down the price of Kindles and other readers.
