What began as Read an eBook Week in Canada has now been officially declared Read an eBook Month. The month is March 2012, and it encourages readers, authors, and librarians to read an eBook.

Order by the 41st Parliament of Canada, First Session, Motion M-293 was passed declaring the month of March Read an E-Book Month.

The Order reads:
That, in the opinion of the House, the government should: (a) recognize that the ePublishing industry has created economic opportunities for entrepreneurs, authors, publishers and e-reader manufacturers; (b) recognize that e-books present significant benefits for seniors and children; (c) recognize that e-books are an environmentally-friendly alternative to books; (d) declare the month of March as “Read an E-book Month”; (e) support the goals and ideals of “Read an E-book Month; and (f) encourage Canadians to observe “Read an E-book Month”.

Ebooks are now the fastest selling books, eBooks turned 40 in 2011, and eReaders are the number one selling item on Amazon.
