I just finished teaching with an ebook for the second time and preparation is helpful.

My teaching Kindle books have pagination which I can track to editions so that helps enormously. I wouldn't teach from an ebook without that!

I bookmark and highlight extensively so I spend most of the class navigating those snippets or searching. I don't mark up printed books (I use post-it notes or paper bookmarks to mark passages of interest) so an ebook is actually better for me in this regard.

Still, it's really not for everyone or every book. I'm noticing that a lot of students hate ebooks because they're a literal pain to read on their conventional computer screens (and very few own ereaders which might be easier on their eyes).
