I don’t ever want to unpack my books

I don’t ever want to unpack my books. Instead, I want a paperback-sized tablet PC whose sole job is to run eReader loaded with all of my books. It’s work like Project Gutenberg, the Open Content Alliance and Safari that may finally make this happen.

However, like my DVD and music collection, I am willing to purchase my book collection one more time in digital form, but only if it is non-DRM’d so that I can use the book where ever I want to. It’s no good to be to be able to read my book at my PC, but not in bed or in line at the airport.
