When I want to get a new book from my library, I just plug the PW into the USB and I have a new book in about 20 seconds. Using my method, 2 GB is fantastic and more than enough space for my needs. Do you mind explaining your (and so many other people's) reasoning for keeping everything on one device? Sorry, just curious.
I can organize my books HOW I want them rather than being restricted to how they do it on the cloud. I don't have my computer with me all the time (like at work), and if I finish a book and want to read another one, and haven't been able to get to a PC, then they are all right there, in the order I want, in the collections I want.

I don't have ALL my books on there, but I always keep about 15-20 TBR books

EDIT: This being said, I have more of my "read" books on it than my TBR, I just read them and put them in a collection. I would LOVE to have more than 2GB on it. Also, I enjoy comics, those take up some space
