Smelly one too!
Thank somebody that my e-readers don't give back smelly feedback.

Be sure to get it on paper, don't get a fancy electronic braille-display.

But all sarcasm aside: is there a e-reader that instead of e-ink got a braille display? Now wouldn't that be neat?

ok, sure dude ...
That is why I got a Kindle TOUCH, or did I fall for another marketing trick of Amazon? It is real, I can touch it and it gives feedback back to me - unlike that black ship in Restaurant at the end of the Universe where you can try touching it, but it is too slick.

There is no option to print out a Kindle book? How are we supposed to read it?
