I'm sure you've heard about the fight amongst book-lovers about whether to upgrade to an e-reader or to stick with a more traditional paperback or hardcover book.

Some folks really don't mind using an e-reader. In fact, e-books have basically become the same thing as a printed physical book.

At least, some people seem to think so. And it's leading to a wild new trend that you have to see to believe!

On June 2, a United States Ambassador was sworn into office using a Kindle in place of a copy of the Constitution. Check out the tweet below!

Some folks have even been sworn in during official proceedings with an iPad version of the Bible because a physical copy could not be found. A Nassau, New York County Executive was sworn in to his second term in office in just that manner.

These firefighters were being promoted, and needed to take an oath of office. Good thing someone had their iPad!

It seems like it won't be long before the president is taking an oath on a digital Bible! What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.
