    was just thinking, my sister does a lot of reading, and spends about £1000 a year on books alone. most of them she reads once and puts back down, then never looks at them again. is there any kind of like video rental store (block busters) but for books? would make things a lot cheaper, plus once one person has read it the other can get enjoyment out of it too

    I have no idea, I was just linking it up for kicks. I think the point of it is the quality of the screen and the fact that the battery life is massive.
