i agree that ultimately, ereader will end up being used as a generic term for "electronic reading device" just like walkman (or kleenex, or aspirin, or...). but for now, since it does cause a lot of confusion with the eReader file format (which ironically is not compatible with any e-ink ereader (device) currently on the market, unless i'm mistaken !) i prefer to use liseuse, which has a long and glorious history on MobileRead and elsewhere.

i would love to read in the bathtub, sadly to do this you usually need to have... a bathtub.

And that's why we enlarged the bathroom, so we could fit in the second toilet, shower stall and a bathtub...

Maybe due to that strange custom of having the toilet in a separate room
