E-Books

I've been here before, and I'm back again at the same point simply because someone was saying to me that The Space in Between should be made available as an e-book. What do you think? I, personally, would not read a book on a small screen; part of the reading experience is the weight of the book, the smell and the texture of the paper, the actual feel of the cover... but, of course, you've heard all this before. When I think of a book I have read, the physical appearance of the book is often part of the memory, and, while I remember the content, I also remember the book as an object in its own right. This experience cannot exist when a book is simply a file on some electronic contraption.
