Let us know your failures and successes, but if you have a plan that works, be sure to share!
1. PC or Tablet depending on where I want to read them (in my office or in bed) - tried to use my devices but even if I could make them readable, the small screen and poorer navigation made it not worth the bother
2. Pdf/Djvu - take them as they come
3. Acceptable; cannot think of better to deal with formulas (I read mostly math or physics books)
4. Not particularly; anyway I spend my working day in front of 5 monitors, so reading on them is not a problem with eyesight, it's a problem of convenience
5. I occcasionally read the paper version because of better navigation, but I am ok with the pc reading too and I do not feel the need to print things out often
