This paper presents some preliminary reflections on the emergent field of e-textbooks. It seeks to raise awareness to relevant areas of research as different countries make policy transition to replace a pedagogical tool which can be considered to have been one of the driving forces of the classroom experience: the textbook. It is argued pedagogical practices, engagement of key stakeholders and empirically based study of e-textbooks are priority areas of enquiry in the field. The educational sector has been progressively developing strategies to encourage innovation aimed at the development of e-literacy and digital learning in schools. It will be an exciting intellectual adventure to observe the role e-textbooks will play in this rapidly changing educational landscape.
