The Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Debuts the World's First e-Library

Taiwan's Taoyuan International Airport is silencing every e-Book critic in one fell swoop by introducing the world's first e-Library. Taoyuan's e-Library is run by the airport's duty-free shop and contains over 400 titles available in both Chinese and English.

The books can only be read in the airport and cannot be downloaded. The e-Library was created in a partnership with the Institute for Information Industry and cost a little over $101,000. I do not own an e-Reader, but I think that the e-Library is a great move. e-Books are the way of the future whether people like it or not, and it is great to see someone finally taking the initiative and creating an e-Library. I wouldn't be surprised to see e-Libraries in every airport in the next few years. Remember where you heard it first.
