Editorial Reviews

Voya Reviews, April 2014 (Vol. 36, No. 1) - Mary Ellen Snodgrass
Marcovitz’s volume about eBooks covers the basics—electronic book styles, advantages, disadvantages—as well as career data on becoming a library information technologist. A sidebar on types of reading experiences indicates that use of e-readers significantly boosts user engagement in work/school projects, news, and pleasure reading—by as much as 18 percent. A side issue, price fixing, highlights strategies of online booksellers and e-book distributors to dominate the publishing market. The bibliography refers readers to comprehensive critiques in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and Pc Magazine while stressing the legal ramifications of public domain and copyright law. A valuable guide to YA readers venturing into electronic texts and online classrooms, this Technology 360 series simplifies an evolving literary and educational milieu linked by technology. (Technology 360) Reviewer: Mary Ellen Snodgrass; Ages 12 to 15.
