Well I don't know if it would make a difference for sure either, but it might. The top screen of the K3 isn't gorilla glass and when I dropped mine a while back the substrate did crack. Would it still have done if it had been protected by gorilla glass? I don't know, but it may have survived. Certainly I've dropped my Kindle Fire several times and it has yet to have a serious scratch much less a damaged screen.

I've read a lot of picture books from my tablet over the years to my now six year old simply because it's always nearby (and I've been able to pick up a lot of bargain books). It actually worked quite well when she was a toddler and the experience did not feel inferior to reading paper books with my older children. She's reading as readily as any of her older siblings both with paper books and ebooks.

My older children have stated a preference for paper books but that hasn't stopped them from using their kobos (and they can't lose a ebook as they do paper books).

And unlike paper books you can't just have the bookmark fall out and lose your place either.
