I justified spending 350$ on the Sony reader like this: for 350 have a library of all the classic works just like a book (without eye restrain)

To tell you the truth sometimes I feel like a cheap laptop would have been a better investment.

Also I realized how little I read -- not counting all the online news, onlince reference works and things like that.
As the reader fits nicely in my pockets and "opens up" where I left off I can steal a little time here and there (e.g. while riding the elevator) and do more reading. I really started to like it.

re: reading in the living room
hmmm watching TV is more social
would be interesting to somehow making reading a social activity -- like book club reading used to be, just less nerdy
a giant eInk screen in the living room maybe
