A Blast from the Past “ Picture this on a steamy day: You turn the AC down to sub-Arctic, curl up in your favorite chair and spend the evening reading […] on a nifty, handheld electronic book-reading machine about the size of a paperback. To turn a page, you press a button […] If a passage inspires you, you can highlight it, or electronically dog-ear the page for later return. If a word stumps you, tap it with your finger, and an instant definition appears on the screen.” “ REVOLUTION E-books could change the way we publish and read .” Charleston Gazette , 5/30/1999
