Hi Mike, sorry for the delayed response, it was such a busy week at school! As of now, I do not have any e-readers for student use in my classroom, although a few of my students have their own e-reader, and I certainly allow them to bring it for independent reading time in the classroom. I do know some teachers who are successfully using e-readers with their students. (They got their e-readers through DonorsChoose.org grants.) Paperbacks wear out so quickly, so I can certainly understand the appeal of digital books.
In my classroom, my students use iPods for audiobooks, and they read digital content on our classroom computers. The students really enjoy both.
All the best,
