    George,

    "I can't speak for others, but my own preference, if possible, is to read
    text as printed paper, rather than on screen, though I recognise digitised
    books as a valuable resource"
     
    Basically, I agree - it's probably a function of old age; not you, of course - only me. But how about this for something new. From the August Readers Digest ....
     
    "Instant Books
     
    A machine by On Demand Books can print a bound version of most books for a penny a page. And anyhone can take in a manuscript stored on a flash drive and have a bound book in ten minutes .......... is in eight US cities ........... several thousand may be in place around the world in firve years"
     
    This obvously won't solve the lack of fold out plates and some pictures, which is really the biggest problem I have with digitized books.
     
    Regards,
     
    Henry
