    Well I turn down the brightness and contrast and watch my enormous LCD screen that's strategically attached to the ceiling above my luxury 4 poster bed. That's how... I do it ..and you?

    Lol that's hot.

    I don't like ebooks. I ruins the [reading] experience for me. I read anywhere from crowded subways to gym locker-rooms, so luggin' around a laptop ain't gonna work. I heard some people put ebooks on pda's, though, and that's cool.

    I might actually try that. Maybe there is a pda that has a usb port for my flash drive.

    dude benchez, you better have put that print quality on draft, and black-and-white, because ink is kinda expensive. not to mention the paper. i don't want to do the math, put printing out a 2-300-page book might cost around 7 dollars. It depends on the ebook though, because some use a lot less ink than others.

    Still i'd hate to be the one who has to staple together a 300-page book. Maybe staple it in chapters? Still a hassle to archive. Then again, maybe you have the big ol' filing cabinet for printed ebooks.

    Just another thought, it would be more convenient (at least for me) if you bought a printer that, instead of printing 8-by-11.5in sheets, it printed something more like 5-by-7.2in sheets.

    I use my laptop at night and listen to audio books when I am on the road.
