Page turners

Our physical relationship to books is very different to the one we have with music, and that's yet another reason why the Kindle seems like a lot of fuss over nothing. (Marginal Utility)

The Kindle is not apparently meant to be the book that subsumes all books; it appears to become clumsier to use the more you load onto it. In practice, it seems a novelty gadget for travelers who want respite from their laptops, but are too indecisive to settle on what book to bring on the plane.
