IRL books. Psssssssssssssh. Those stupid things are just collecting dust now that I have e-readers and tablets and all sorts of stuff for consuming books in the obviously superior digital format. So what do I do with all those novels? Lamps!
I've seen and quickly played around with a couple e-readers, but do not own one. How do they fare in terms of quickly scanning a book? Is it even possible?
For instance, one book I'm reading now has several sections of very different information in it. With a paperback it's easy to flip through and find the next section (without knowing how far you will have to go). Is that even a possibility on any e-reader or is it just a matter of blindly going to the next page until locating the change? Are there good indices or page thumbnails or something?
This is a feature of a real book I wouldn't want to lose.
