Scholastic Study: Kids Want to Use E-Readers

A new study says that the majority of kids questioned were interested in using electronic reading devices and believed they would read more if they had an e-reader. Then again, what do kids know? The study says that kids also count texting and MySpace as "reading" too.

A study commissioned by Scholastic -- the publisher of the 'Goosebumps' and 'Harry Potter' series -- found that 57-percent of kids aged 9 to 17 were interested in reading on electronic devices. Their parents, however, believe that using electronic devices of any kind limits the amount of time they would actually read, do physical activity or hang out with their families.
