That's a good point, but it may not matter in certain circumstances. Specifically, public
schools don't want
students writing in the textbooks, and they may not care about the size thing.
Of course, those same schools probably would be extremely
reluctant to put something as pricey and relatively
delicate (compared to a paper textbook) as a Sony Reader.
