about one-fourth of the boys who had read an e-book said they were reading more books for fun. Boys have traditionally lagged behind girls in reading.
Also, half of those in an older age range, from 9 to 17, said they would read more books for fun if they had greater access to e-books.
Children said e-books were particularly good when they wanted to be secretive about reading. But at night in bed, most children said they still liked to read books in print.
