No One Should Be Shamed for Reading

hey pro e-reader argument

hey anti e-reader argument


reading a book in any format is perfectly ok, you should probably stop arguing and go read instead.

The pursuit of knowledge and the consumption of information should trump the delivery method, every time. If your kid (or anyone, for the matter) comes to you and says “I really want to get into reading, I think I want an e-reader,” you should be delighted. If they want to take a trip down to the half-price book store and pick up a dozen books for 5 bucks? That’s great too. This person, regardless of the method, wants to expand their mind.

Encourage them, don’t dissuade them.
