If the objective is to promote reading, then e-books are just as good a paper books. Actually, e-books are far more convenient to read, as one does not have to lug around a heavy paper book, which is discarded once the contents are read, contributing to paper waste and not environmentally friendly! We used to carry wads of paper money to pay for this and that; today we hardly do that, we just swipe our cellphone. So also with reading, we don't need paper books, we just read online!
