    I'm not sure this has as much applicability as something like the ipod. What's the point of having craploads of books on a super expensive electronic reader? If you go on holiday, you're unlikely to take that many books, and paper ones aren't an issue if you accidentally drop them in the bath.

    If you're reading at home or on the train, I can't imagine a big plastic lump is very comfortable or practical.

    The idea of downloading books also fills me with luddite dread, the mp3 encourages lazy music listening, and the kindle (crap name) will encourage the same mental approach to books. Books must be smelled before purchase!

    Am I missing something (except the invite to the 20th century)?
