I'm not really techy at all. I'm much more old fashioned..prefer a handwritten letter over email...would rather play a boardgame over a video game..but I have to say that I would probably pay a few hundred dollars per kid for an iPad or Kindle just so they wouldn't have to lug books around. Hannah's backpack weighs more than she does..and not only that, it doesn't fit all the books she needs to carry so she carries an extra bookbag...plus her violin..and her lunch. It's ridiculous.
Listen, I love books. You all know that about me now..I really have no desire for an iPad..even though they look really cool. But if I were a student don't you think it would make my life so much easier...and lighter?
