"...While my students did experiment with e-readers and Kindles, all of them reverted to paper books.

Completely agree with this (somewhat long) article. As much as I love technology and think that it can help with an education it cannot replace a book especially in the long run and ROI.

Curious as to Mr Espen's thoughts. ;-)
