Re: Electronic Readers

I don't currently have (or really, want) one, but I might consider it sometime in the future once the prices drop.

I think one great advantage (if this is even currently an option, though I doubt it would be difficult to implement if it's not) would be being able to search the text for a specific passage or mention. I know sometimes I've flipped through a book, searching for something, and wished I could just "ctrl+f" to search and find it.

The fact that you can store tons of books in that small space isn't really much of a draw for me. I like having lots of books, and displaying them. I like the process of starting with a thick book, and making my way thorough the pages. I guess it might be helpful when traveling if you have limited space, but I currently don't travel enough for that to really be an issue for me.
