2. Easier to Read Long Books

Books come in every imaginable page count, but many novels span several hundred or even more than 1000 pages. Anyone who has read a book with 500 or more pages knows weight can become a factor. The book takes up half a backpack and is almost impossible to hold in one hand. Plus, many lengthy novels are part of equally-expansive series. The Wheel of Time series, for instance, is more than 11,000 pages. Rather than filling half your bookshelf with a series, tablets and e-readers store thousands of books in a device that weighs about the same as a mid-sized paperback.
