So did I, but LJ was uncooperative *G*

I'm still not interested in reading my books on some expensive electronic device, but that might change. While, "my bookses! mine! my preciousssss!" won't.

I'm very interested in being able to go on holiday with a reasonable amount of reading material without having to lug around a metric ton of paper. *g*

After the "book-case incident" I am seriously considering buying an E-Book Reader. *sigh*

I guess it is going to be a Sony...
