    Actually I am moving towards having my library as text files, HTML 
    files, and PDF files on my hard drive.  I have at least 1000 books on 
    my computer, where I can search through them all in moments.  That is 
    what has made the pruning of my books do-able.

    There will always be books that I want in hardback to take outside to 
    read, but there are a class of books that are not classics that you 
    simply use for reference on occasion and they are perfect candidates 
    for computer-based books.

    Someday we may get color LCD displays on laptops that one can 
    actually read in outdoor light, but until then, we're stuck with 
    indoor only reading on computers.
