A little late, but Malcolm Gladwell's _New Yorker_ review essay centered
around (but not confined to) Sellen and Harper's _Myth of the Paperless
Office_ is also excellent, and gets at issues of paper consumption:


The Sellen and Harper book itself is also excellent, as someone else noted.
The Gladwell essay points to some of the key reasons why decreasing paper
consumption even with computers and the internet, which hypothetically could
result in less paper use, is difficult because of the affordances of paper.
