Abstract: With the proliferation of electronic readers in today’s society, it is essential for educators to begin to examine their use in educational settings. Examining the use of electronic readers in an educational setting will allow future teachers and researchers to understand the impact electronic readers have on students and reading. This paper explores one facet of data from a study examining tutors and electronic readers in an education laboratory setting at a large southeastern university. Specifically, this paper examines if the tutors themselves would use electronic readers for educational reading, pleasure reading or both.
