This appealed to me, but then, I have a problem. I find hardback books way too expensive for me. I came to the UK with 2 books way back in 1992, both paperback. Now I would say that 90% of my library is paperback. Purchasing hardbacks is a pain. I also went through a phase of using my Palm Pilot III, then Palm Pilot V, then Sony Clie to read e-books. I was rampaging through Gutenberg, purchasing cd's full of e-books off ebay and reading them on the tube. And then I fell out of the habit and went back to reading paper books!
But nice to read from a fellow logophilic! :)
