[pct-l] Books

I'm planning to use an email device (a peek) and then using
www.dailylit.com.  They email books to you a chapter at a time.  They have a
bunch of public domain books for free.  I'm hoping this works out as I'm
trying to cut the weight of the books I carry (help I'm turning into a gram
weeny!!) and I'm carring the email device anyway to journal.  I also
sometimes carry crosswords and sudoku's.

Only issue I have besides the weight of books is at night when cowboy
camping, and I am using a headlamp - the bugs attempt to kamaski themselves
into your face.  I usually pitch a tent just so I can read.
