For hardcore book enthusiasts, like myself, it’s hard to let go of walking into a bookstore and grabbing a new novel and a coffee. The process of purchasing new literature is so simple now that you can have your new book and be halfway through it while I would be still driving over to the bookstore. But even tangible book lovers can convert to the e-reader, I have.
There’s a lot to love in an e-reader. They’re lightweight, they can hold thousands of books and magazines, and you don’t need two hands to hold all the pages back; all you need is your thumb or index finger to hit the next page.
Now here’s the burning question, how many online learners have e-readers now? At American Public University we got some great tips from our own students who use e-readers to ease some of the strain from class. They take a syllabus, convert to a PDF and save it on their e-reader so it’s portable for classwork. Great right? Do you use an e-reader for class? If so, answer our poll below on your favorite and tell us how you use it for class.
