notes that " about 1 hour of energy spent on a laptop computer, equals the amount of energy expended to create just 4 sheets of paper; you can read a lot more than 4 pages in an hour. Plus, because eBooks use zero fossil fuels, and no trees, by choosing an eBook (even some of the time), you contribute to making a big difference." On the other hand, my wife, a prodigious reader, notes that by getting her books from the library she is making even more of a difference.
