20 years is short and will not change the habits of generations and generations. The book has always been free of access to poorer people through libraries. It is the only way to keep a nation educated past the mandatory schooling years. An e-library would not be free (although project Gutenberg is making great strides here) and how many people can afford internet as it is?. If one reads once in a while, it can be easy to say yes to companies living off book sales. This can represent danger for others who can not pay for further education, vigilance is important. And what about the conditions the publishers want us to abide by? DRM? Imagine a DRMed library!
