    Interesting, but I think an iBook is a tad heavier than a regular book ;)

    You'd be surprised to see how heavy biochemistry books are ;-) I'd like to carry them in a PDF on my iBook, but maybe one day...

    I've actually read a 700+ page PDF on my iBook, it wasn't too bad. But I'm not sure how well it would work sideways, since it doesn't sit on the table that way.

    PS. Welcome to the forums!

    I was just at a Social Studies conference up in Chicago and there were a couple of book publishers that had some of their books available digitally. Guess it saves them the cost of printing and if a kid damages a cd that the "book" was on, you can just burn them another. Wonder how they keep track of the licenses for that?
