Honestly, how large is your large collection of books? For regular books, 4GB is a lot. Actually, available space is a bit less because the device itself needs space for firmware and operating system.
Let's do some math:
So let's say you have 3000MB with a Kindle 3. Average text book or novel is about 5MB, usually much less, but let's exaggerate here so you will have:
3000 / 5 = 600 books.
Do you really need to carry on such amount of books with you all the time?
