German students greet e-books with enthusiasm

In collaboration with two German universities, ciando GmbH recently concluded that e-book lending is hip among students. On average, e-books were lent three times more often than the equivalent paper book editions. Ciando, who is a provider of e-book lending platforms, attributes the success to the fact that students can search, borrow, read and return over the Internet, even when library doors are closed.

Note that Ciando did not reveal whether the fact that students borrowed more also implied that they'd read more.
