LISNews is a blog about libraries, books, etc. (IIRC.it was the first

New York Times article, An Entire Bookshelf, in Your Hands

WHEN Paul Biba, a lawyer in Bernardsville, N.J., finds himself stuck
waiting, he likes to pull out his Nokia E61i cellphone and read one of
the 20 or so books he usually stores on it.

The virtual bookshelf in his pocket currently has science fiction like
"Falling Free" by Lois McMaster Bujold, all of the novels of Anthony
Trollope and Charles Dickens, "Eminent Victorians" by Lytton Strachey and
the September issue of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction.

"Once you get use to having books with you, you get use to reading in
places where it never occurred to you. If I'm waiting in line at the
supermarket counter, why not read one of my science fiction magazines?"
he said. "Believe it or not, I'll sit down in my chair at home, pull out
my phone and read a book." [0]Story continued here.
