I did the find-descriptive-writing assignment with the non-iPad class yesterday, and one interesting tidbit merits sharing. Most of the descriptive writing in what they read (Prologue & Chapter 1) comes from the Prologue, which is paginated with Roman numerals. So when students were sharing their quotes, they at first stumbled over the Roman numerals, not knowing how to say them (eventually they resorted to just describing them: ‘ex, ex; ex, ex, eye, eye’). So score one (ok, maybe a half) for no page numbers in iBooks.
