They already are. Look at the PW and the rough -don't know how else to describe the new screen texture as I had not personally touched one yet. That is a big step towards getting closer to the tactile feel of old-fashioned paper.
Someone doesn't like that there is only one page? Make an ereader that folds open like a "real" book and has 2 screens. Either for 2 page display or possibly as option to have all text on one side, and book information, a small cover maybe, footnotes, dictionary lookups - all this without disturbing the main text only side. Also no need to have a seperate cover, as the screens, when shut, could be on inside.
Not sure I would like it though - I like beeing able to read one handed. I sometimes read with both hands and fold the cover open and hold it like a normal book (one handed it is folded all the way to back).
(I am aware there is some readers like that with lcd and eink - can't remember the brand - but they never appeared to be serious reading-dedicated devices)
