Actually, this cuts both ways - it is much easier for me to share a book with my sister in another state through Amazon than it ever would be with paper. And if your family is on your account, it is even better. Particularly if you are one of those families who bought 4 hardcover Harry Potters (mom, dad, two kids) when they new one was released.
