I have no problem with this idea

I don't see any big issues with kids having e-readers. I have a few issues with e-readers themselves though. My biggest issue is you can't give the books away or sell them at garage sales, and you can't pick up used e-books for a quarter.

e-readers are handy, light weight, can be read in the dark, can hold many books, and are just as readable as a paper book.
