Some of those opposed to e-books will grudgingly admit e-boks have a place for people who can't hold a paper book, or whose vision requires the adjustable font. But if you're going to claim that reading an e-book is not reading, then you have no choice - if you want to be rational - to claim that the quadraplegic using an e-reader is in fact not reading at all. If reading from an e-book is not reading, it doesn't suddenly become reading just because you can't use a paper book.
