Breaking up with ebooks???
Sarah Houghton Librarian in Black wants to break up with ebooks. http://librarianinblack.net/librarianinblack/2012/08/ebookssuckitude.html I hope it's a momentary fit of exasperation. Librarians need to persist in working with content suppliers and make ebooks work. Here's one reason: kids like digital books. See this article from the Tampa Bay Times: Hillsborough "myON" users read more than 1-million books http://www.tampabay.com/blogs/gradebook/content/hillsborough-myon-users-read-more-1-million-books in just six months. I'm the first to admit that ebooks can have their problems - BUT I would be reading a lot less without them.
