Especially for the generation growing up consuming all sorts of digital content, while in school where computers are in classrooms and libraries (which are increasing embracing e-books), and at home while on the computer doing homework, chatting with friends, etc.

Books are man's oldest form of media, and there will be resistance, especially for the older generations and non-tach savvy. But as we are seeing first hand, Gen X and Y are growing up with technology and digital information, consuming less traditional media (newspapers, magazines, books, TV, radio) and getting more and more media and content online and on digital devices (MP3 players, PDAs, phones, etc).
