    Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but I still like to have a hard-copy book. Especially when it is something that I'm likely to refer back to multiple times. I just find it far easier to grab a book off the...

    I'll second this! They are heavy and not balanced very well. BTW...I've got one I'd be willing to part with, if anyone in the US is interested.
