The peek at the iPad book

If you haven't seen the video of Penguin's demonstration of what they're doing on the iPad, you can head over to the Happy Accident and take a peek. And you should take a peek, as I think it puts to rest the argument that kids and e-books aren't likely to mix (not that that's ever been a valid argument).

Is it a book? Does that matter? It's a path towards keeping kids reading, seems to me, and isn't likely to wipe out printed books. Still, the days of the simple PDF equivalent e-book are numbered, seems to me.

As one of my favorite teachers used to say on his tests, "Feel free to discuss." Then it wasn't optional, though here it is!
