I have come to the SAD conclusion that an e-reader is the book addict's equivalent of "out of sight, out of mind." Your rationale here being, "I can't see the huge pile of books that would otherwise overrun all living space in my home..." Let me just state for the record that it CAN be that bad.
The pile that you can't see DOES exist and it is VISIBLE to someone somewhere regardless of your admitting it or not.
The QUESTION here is:
When are you going to READ all the books that you HAVE?
