Howard Brazee enquires:-

 >How often do you read for 12 hours
 >straight without having the ability
 >to plug (your ebook reader) in?

Frequently:-

Long-haul flights.
Hotels in countries with weirder than usual power plugs and no adaptors.
Safaris.
Sailing trips with power-miser skippers.
Extended power cuts due to blizzards.
Hospitals (some have the craziest rules about electrical stuff).
Etc.

Any reader I buy must go for at least a week on a charge (with backlight off).

James - who read for over 17 hours a few days ago (Cape Town Airport (4 hours),
CPT-AMS (11 hours, mostly reading), Amsterdam Airport (another 4 hours),
AMS-SOU (three quarters of an hour)
