E books and digital books are gaining momentum. Universities are “embracing” the digital textbook and the majority of these Universities are upper echelon institutions whose student body can afford to take the risk of using a piece of technology that can possibly fail mechanically or the school can afford to provide the technology to the student body. The majority of higher education enrollment in the U.S. can be found in the Community College sector, the students who attend these institutions are less likely to use the digital media based on the financial reasons alone.
