Signs of conversion

So two days ago I began reading a p-book, the first in over a years time.
After a little while I discovered that my thumb was looking for Next Page button. That sub-conscious move has to be proof that I am a total convert (yes, there are religious under currents) to the e-book paradigm.
Has anyone else had strange occurrences like this?

Not to mention reaching for the five-way controller so that you can look up a word in the built-in dictionary.

Like thinking "how do I get a larger font on this thing?"!
Like putting it down, no bookmark, but still expecting it to open up at the right place?

For me; when someone loans me a DTB and after reading about 50 pages, I decide to buy the Kindle edition because it is more convenience.... I should punish myself for spending the money, but the Kindle really is fantastic for those thick books.

I'm still the complete opposite... when really engrossed in a book on my Kindle, I reach for the non-existent page to turn with my off hand.

And I've been reading primarily on electronic devices for about 5 years.
