Since I've run out of paper books to read, I've been using the eMatic and my iPhone to take up the slack. The latter has a dozen or so books loaded, at present, though I'm only reading one, while the former has hundreds, and I'm reading half-a-dozen. Amazing. It's so easy to carry around with me, compared to dragging a library with me. I'm not giving up entirely on paper books (for one thing, I still own many to read), but I can understand why there's such an appeal to electronic book readers, generally.
