The final unique feature of ebooks over their conventional counterpart is the affect on the environment, no trees cut down for paper or packaging, no carbon produced or bleaches used by production factories, no shop outlets to heat or light, no recycling problem at the end of their life and no convoys of trucks delivering them.
