Then get a kindle. Get a Paperwhite or just the cheapest fucking Kindle you can find. I use my Paperwhite still because my iPad (they just came out with the fourth gen, btw.) is a little heavy for extended reading, and a little clunky besides. I still think it has the best resolution... its "night" mode kicks the Kindle Fire's white on black, and there is a much wider range of brightness levels.
But the Paperwhite almost feels like a book sometimes, and it's small and slow and shitty so you don't worry much about breaking it.
I miss books though honestly. I just found a gem at a yard sale: a first edition hardcover John Irving.... But I know I'll never read the thing. Too damn impractical.
