Good post Old School. I like that you even mention rules of download as some might not have considered these aspects when grabbing quantities. I enjoy reading books in epub mainly as these book formats are small files and layout adjusts to the readers preferences.

I have a specific eBook tablet which is black and white only on a flatmatt screen and can be read even in direct sunlight. They don't cost much ($50) and is far easier to hold than a book would be itself. I find it is used most bedside when trying to knock myself out and often something to carry to the can too! :lol:
