Hi! As a mother of two schoolgirls (a real book warmers), I frequently ask a question whether it's OK that I allow them to use their Kindle instead of ordinary book with images...
On the one hand - it's handy and useful (for example instant translation in Kindle), on the other hand - I suppose, it's better for children to read printed books, turn the pages etc...
What about you? What's your "reading traditions"?

Do you allow to use e-readers instead of books?

Dh and I both have e-readers but have lately ditched them in favour of actual book reading. W

No books only.
In fact I argued with my university that much because it made my epilepsy play up. I can't stare at a screen that much 😳 I had to print everything off. Cost HUNDREDS!
Books are so important for children.

Both. We read books everyday to DS2 but we also read to him from a kindle.
I read both also. There's nothing like the feel and smell of a real book BUT the convenience of my kindle and the cost differential well big pros for the kindle.

Reading is great whether it's kindle or printed.
I don't think there's an issue either way. Especially since kindle books are often cheaper.
Picture books for young children are a different story. ..but if they're reading novels I don't see why kindle would be an issue.

Both. But much prefer a real book... it's much more meditative with the real thing. I agree with @binnielici there is nothing like the feel and smell of a real book. But we have only so much room for bookshelves, and ours are already full. Kindles are so convenient, you can take more than one book with you, store hundreds of books without taking up space, and it's cheaper.
