Why e-textbooks are growing in popularity among students

Remember those days in school when one had to carry a huge bag with class-work notes, home work notes, text books and work books? How we wished we just had a single textbook and a single notebook! 

Technology has improved by leaps and bounds now. We had laptops on which we downloaded books and then the tablet revolution began and today one has access to inexpensive and sturdy Android tablet devices for as low as US$100 that can store a whole library of books.
Studies have revealed that 98% of college students own a digital device and 73% of students said it would be impossible for them to study without the advancements of technology - read - 'The Internet'.
E-books are portable and eco-friendly as you don't have to cut a tree to make paper. 25% students choose e-textbooks and their interactive features help retention of study-concepts.
