This is mostly pertaining to textbooks. I am curious what seasoned (and new) home schoolers choose in this regard.

53% (7)Physical Book
7% (1)We don't use textbooks.
We do not use textbooks and I also have not gotten anything specifically for homeschooling for our e-reader yet. I am considering it though depending on cost and availability of what we want to use next year.
Dh is a college student and is considering getting some of his books next semester as e-books.

Honestly- it just all depends. I have a NookColor and the ability to get books from the library on there is great, I can also get numerous books for free that way. DS takes some online classes and most of that material is online or email format. He also loves printed material as well.
I guess we are non-committal at this point and love all the options available to us. I love my Nook and wouldn't give it back for anything but sometimes I just want to curl up with an actual book as well. DS loves technology but sometimes printed material is better. Graphs and charts are difficult on e-readers, sometimes he needs to 'see' 2-3 pages and you can't do that electronically.
I would say ideally: literature, history on e-books while math and science printed books. (at least for jr high and above)post #6 of 106/21/12 at 11:01ampost #7 of 106/22/12 at 3:29pmpost #8 of 106/22/12 at 3:52pmpost #9 of 107/1/12 at 8:06pmpost #10 of 107/10/12 at 2:31pm
We will start to homeschool in the beginning of the year and I had an option of buying online curiculum and ebooks for our materials. I choose to go with traditional books because I like the ability of leafing throught the book and looking up quickly parts that interest me. I have sony reader and kindle and love both for reading fiction books but reading educational books also did not work for me. I missed flipping the pages.
