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.
