Hello everyone. Once again, I come to seek good advice from all of you, parents out there.
My 11 year old son has his own Kindle and he loves it. But lately, he has left it on the side and gone back to paper books. Fine by me, as long as he still loves books, whatever the format, even on goat skins, I am happy. But I asked him why he does not read on Kindle and he told me that he has nothing interesting to read.
I did not say anything, but I was a little bit hurt. His Kindle has about 300+ titles, books we chose together, others that I found and downloaded thinking he might like them, some are series that I downloaded to replace his paper books etc.. I have arranged his Kindle by collection, because he is not into this kind of things, and by authors inside the collections.
I do not want to make a big deal of it, so, I find myself buying again tree books. I just bought The Time Hunters again, because it is a book I really wanted him to read and I know he will read it as a paper book.
But what did I do wrong? could it be because there are too many titles on his Kindle and he cannot see the cover? or just too many titles and it is putting him off. Or maybe he needs time off from reading (he reads a lot). And more important, how can I get him to go back to his Kindle? Should I just erase all collections and leave the books just as a list?
I do not mind paper books, but I bought Kindles to have less of them in the house.
Thanks for your help. It is greatly appreciated.
edited to correct typos.
