"We post it on our Facebook page. The day after we let the word out we had "The Fault in Our Stars" on Kindles there was a run for them in the library. The trick is having the eReaders available for us to download the new titles! : )"

Kindle in the Classroom

A place to discuss the Kindle and how students are likely to use it. Will they read more? Will the device hold up or break easily? Will students find enough to read? Please share your thoughts and observations.

"Hi Marsha, Have you started using Kindles in your library? We are just starting and this has been a great place to learn from those who have jumped into the 'ebook waters' ahead of me. I don't know if you remember me from when I was…"

Barbara,

You wrote many months ago, and I just saw the comment today (I haven't been on this site for a while after attending a few webinars because for some reason, I haven't been getting e-mails from the site as I did in the fall).  At any rate, when I saw your name, I clicked on the picture to get a better look, and your message popped up.  Of course I remember you -- also we took summer classes together way back.  I am retiring at the end of this year.  Karen G. encouraged me to consider an opening in Beijing.  I decided I didn't want to go there by myself, but it did get me thinking about retiring and traveling.  You must have had many adventures over the years.  I have six Kindles with all the GMBA titles available in that format for this year,as well as some classics and the Hunger Games series.  I am disappointed that they do not go out more often than they do.  Kids tell me they want to stick to paper books.  I did have a teacher ask me about what to do with a student who said he couldn't read and I downloaded a book for him which he checked out today and showed him how to use the text to voice feature.
