So, it looks like we're going to spend the next school year bouncing around Central Asia. If we do that, we'll be able to take about 200 pounds of stuff with us. Total. For all 5 of us. That's not very much, especially I remember we took 300 pounds of books to Kyrgyzstan last time and it was nowhere near enough.
That's where e-readers are going to have to come in. The trouble is, children's books aren't exactly the most common books available on e-readers. Especially children's non-fiction about world history from 500-1500, or astronomy, or world music.
Maybe it's just all an excuse to get a couple of e-readers. But they do seem like the perfect option for a family who reads a lot and moves a lot.
