"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. Re the piece on University Libraries “sharing” eBooks, the belief among academic librarians that commercial publishers will always be the primary and best source for eBooks appears to me to be seriously undermining their bargaining position. This weakening also threatens to bring up the question of whether traditional academic libraries are the best option for handling digital works. To put it bluntly, I think that they are shooting themselves in the foot and then bragging about how good their aim is.
