 EReaders or Tablets?
Hello,

Requesting for your feedback. I am a homeschool, single and work-from-home mom and my daughter is requesting for an E-Reader, since she loves reading. According to this link, https://thewiredshopper.com/e-readers-v ... iJ_pi5E9sk, you can also read ebooks through a tablet, which I wasn't aware, but according here it appears like it's a norm that people read through tablets.

I like the idea and I like to get her a tablet instead since she can use it to for her homeschooling. Currently she's using my laptop. I just work after she's finished with it. So it's like double whammy, she gets a laptop alternative and E-reader in one buy. What I like best is it's cheaper than a laptop too.

But my main concern is, wouldn't tablets strain my daughter's eyes? At the same time, I was thinking, she might also get distracted that instead of reading her usual adventure stories, she now goes to social media? I know you can limit or guard the websites your children are looking at? Does that work for tablets too?

I'm sorry for having too many questions, but your thoughts are appreciated.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Mitch

If the cost of an extra device isn't too much of an issue, then an e-reader is definitely better in terms of eyestrain. I wouldn't want to use a tablet for any significant reading, but I guess some people don't mind.

I have both actually, but when I don't want to lose attention to messengers, etc, I like to read books using EBook. Talking of which, here is a great online library I've discovered few weeks ago ( source: https://fb2bookfree.com/ ), which can easily offer any ebook in any format you would prefer. Not every online platform can suggest such a huge collection of free ebooks.

I think it depends on you. If you're like me and get highly distracted, I would recommend an eReader. I used to read on my phone but I would find myself checking my social media pages or browsing inbetween reading and then eventually going down the rabbit hole of distractions with my book forgotten.
