I've got lots of short stories and books and read multiples in a day so it's not going to take that long... and I'm not too worried about reading everything I have, I just grab anything that I might enjoy reading, doesn't mean I have to read it but does give me the choice... I'm also planning on taking my eReader(s) with me...
I like to read in bed, on the bus etc. At 1AM I do not want to get out of bed to sideload or browse for something to read for just a little while longer.
It is a luxury for me to always have many choices.
A month or so back I put as many books (some audio) as would fit in main memory just to see how it handled them. Seems fine, maybe slower maybe not.
I have had far fewer crashes and random page turns since. Coincidence probably, or maybe because I just use charger now.
Sorry was on T1
