Benefits with a reader as opposed to paper books (see Related for more):
- You free up space for furniture. Why put lots of wood pulp on shelves?
- Carry several books with you on trips, without noticeable weight.
- Adjust your reader to the best reading comfort (text size vs amount of text per page trade-off, portrait or landscape etc). Try that with a paper book.
- Always watch text straight on, instead of in alternating angles due to stubborn binding.
- Get new books directly via the reader.
- Read your own and others’ documents without having to print them (also see the trip benefit).
