It hasn't got any heavier!

Seriously, its portability is *the* advantage of the Cybook over traditional paper books. Both as regards readability and navigability, 'real' books have it sewn up and the Cybook doesn't even challenge; but tucked into its leather case, the featherweight Cybook is very, very portable. I would like to shave a couple of centimetres off the x and y axes, that would make it easier to get into my pocket, but really I can't complain. I couldn't lie back in bed holding a large-print copy of War and Peace for a couple of hours!
