Personally I consider reading an e-book akin to reading a normal book. Yes the rustic feeling is pretty much lacking but we are actually helping to save the earth by reducing resources and waste :)
The last book I read (on a hard copy) was last year, Mitch Albom's latest book - Have a Little Faith. It was a very insightful book on how we can and should be tolerant with others whether of similar or different faith and beliefs. Religions generally encourage followers to practice good virtues, be loving, giving and forgiving to people they meet.
With the recent decade's emphasis on cracking down on terrorism which fuels their actions through religious radical teachings, this book helped me to understand that different people interpret and exhibits their beliefs in different manners and distorted interpretations of religions causes the hate and violence that is rampant in the 21st century.
Only when we let go of discrimination and learn acceptance will we be able to view the world with an open mind and treat all other fellow beings with love and respect.
