Questionable e-text review

Today, Shelf Awareness printed the following statement: "For our money, based on conversations with students and comments by student debaters on the subject at CAMEX in Houston, economics are key [to the success of e-texts]. If e-texts are significantly cheaper than traditional textbooks, students will load up on them."

As we've posted here many times, there is not much evidence (if any) to back that up (most recently: E-books flop at Ivy institution). The merely anecdotal remarks from SA doesn't really hold much weight.
