Reading great books and reading them well is what is important. Meditative reading, reading which stops and ponders, reading which sees deep into reality - that is the kind of reading which profits. That kind of reading should never end for you. Growth and stimulation and transformation will never end for you. You will be in the company of the greatest minds and hearts for the rest of your life, and you will become their peers if you read for understanding and for life.
~John Piper, on the sanctifying power of books

all true...

i have a major concern this is NOT what one gets from the vast majority of ebooks, according to what i've read - most are a bunch of words thrown together, in hopes of getting $$$ - some do, which is unfortunate, since it encourages more crap! :(
