Good to hear that. One tablets and bunch of books filling a room. Its so convenient to use iBook application compared to crappy printed books. I really wish that printed books phase out as soon as possible and replaced with tablets. By using tablets we can save several trees

Books are much more intimate, the feel of the paper and the pages as you turn them. Nothing like the smells of a book/books on a nice sunny or rainy day. I have a kindle and my library at home (expanding), that I would and will always be fond of.

Since you are on this use a tablet save a tree. Why don't you use leaves to wipe up after you drop your kids off at the pool. They are readily avaliable in the streets, backyard, and local/state parks. It would really help you in your conservation quest, after all who wants to use crappy toilet paper.....
