Books or eBooks?

    I have recently been appointed as Literacy Coordinator at my school and we have some money to invest in the school library.

    We are in consultation at the moment as to whether we should buy some more books or to go across to eBooks and buy some kindles instead.

    Does anyone have any good eBook schemes that can be used in school? Is there a subscription that we can pay so that students can access a range of new books?

    Any ideas would be greatly received - please reply or email me directly at rbaalham@englishcollege.ac.ae

    Many thanks

    Look at Tumble Book Cloud and its sister product with a similar name (I can't now recall).
    We are in a one-to-one environment and use ebooks quite a bit. The students tend to have their own tablets, or choose to read on their laptops (not for me, but it's their choice).
    I'd certainly be tempted to trial at least a couple of Kindles - get students to design a pilot?
