One of the nice things about the Kindle and the Nook - and, let's be honest, most phones fall into the same category - is that they're very light, very small, and very durable. And entirely readable in direct sunlight. My Kindle Touch feels easier to hold than most paperbacks. It's lighter, I don't have to change my grip on it while I'm reading, I can move around without losing my page...
