DO YOU RECOMMEND THE NOOK OR KINDLE FOR A TWEEN WHO IS NOT CRAZY ABOUT READING BUT IS A HANDS ON LEARNER AND LOVES GADGETS. WE ARE HOPING THIS WOULD ENCOURAGE HER TO READ MORE!

  • I think this is a GREAT idea!! I don't have one, but a good friend of mine who is an English teacher at the local college has a Kindle that she loves.....don't know if that's much help.....

  • It might work, it might not (I'm thinking not). I just bought one for my daughter but she loves to read to begin with. My other child does not but is very much a techy/gadget person. Nothing, including getting a Kindle, works for him. He's just not a reader.

  • The Nook. There are over 1 million FREE books!!! My son who hates to read, asked to have my Nook. I will do anything to get my son to read. He is also a computer kid, so the Nook is perfect. He will be getting my Nook in February and I will get myself the Nook color.
