Good.  Then I've understood correctly.  It'd be a nice gadget to have,
but it wouldn't replace books for me.

Because I don't read books by looking at just one page at a time.
While the other ways in which I interact with books do have digital
analogues, I find them significantly more cumbersome.

But perhaps that's just me.
