I was fascinated by the joy with which my 13 year-old nephew received a Kindle reader on Christmas morning, and have to admit that while I still prefer books I'm fully behind any device that gets him and his peers reading.
He easily tapped into a range of free children's books and spent a lot of the holiday on that device instead of the XBox.
The only problem? Given current teens aversion to wearing jeans (they prefer track suits), he couldn't slip the device neatly into his back pocket like his 'tech savvy' uncle.
