As anyone here used one of those "electronic paper" book
reading devices?  I've heard that they are getting pretty
good at mimmicing most of the advantages of paper, but I've
never seen one in person.  If they're as good as they say,
they could be an option for downloading - and just "self
destruct" the text at the due date.
