I agree, Glenn. I only purchase physical books if no eBook is available. No
place for more books, plus the benefits you mention. In most if you click
on a footnote, you go there directly and can return to where you were
reading with one click. Another advantage.

> Thanks to all for the vote of confidence..
> Here is more details on the idea
> ICANN has created introductory guidebooks for newcomers/ learners on
> various aspects of the ICANN Ecospace. These materials are either limited
> print format or on a non interactive PDF Format
> This proposal suggests an updating of the materials to become E Book
> resources for use on mobile, Kindle and other devices. Secondly the
> material would take advantage of the add on feature of audio reading
> capability providing audio transcription to the existing materials
> Key Benefits
> Ebooks are searchable. You can easily search for any information in an
> ebook, instead of turning page after page.
> Ebooks can be interactive and contain audio, video and animations, which
> can enhance the message that the author is trying to convey.
> Subscribers to Ebooks get automatic notifications of updates for
> downloading so the most current versions are always available and
> Tracking of downloads and clicks throughs
> Free widescale distribution channels to distribute Ebooks ie. Google
> Play, Archive.org, Itunes, Amazon and more
