"I’m a journalist, a teacher and an e-book fiend. I work as a French teacher at a K-3 private school. I use drama, music, puppets, props and all manner of tech in my job, and I love it. I enjoy moving between all the classes and having a relationship with each child in the school. Kids are hilarious, and I enjoy watching them grow and learn. My current device of choice for reading is my Amazon Kindle Touch, but I have owned or used devices by Sony, Kobo, Aluratek and others. I also read on my tablet devices using the Kindle app, and I enjoy synching between them, so that I’m always up to date no matter where I am or what I have with me."

  1. I found the argument in “eBooks are not actually Books” to be specious. Sure, there are paper books (pBooks) and there are digital books (eBooks) and there are important differences between and even among them. Still, they have a great deal in common.
    It would have helped, I think, to try to define the concept “book” and then proceed from there. So what does a thing have to be in order to earn the label “book?” Does being digital disqualify? If eBook is an oxymoron, what do we call it? An eThingy?
