"Content that might be of interest to Teacher-Librarians..."


Using a Kobo to "preview" student tastes...

For those thinking about the Kobo, or other eReader, I just read an article reminding me that most eReaders and their associated store will usually allow for the downloading of the first chapter of a book as a preview. Perhaps downloading a whack of YA title previews might be a good way to get kids interested in some authors and genres they might not ordinarily read. Students could vote for new titles based on their enthusiasm for the preview chapter! 

(* It seems that the preview feature only seems to work on the ipad/ipod app, but not the Kobo device itself...dommage!)

Just an idea.
