There's a fabulous Opus strip posted currently for 12/30/07. It addresses the alternative use of an e-book and gets back to a lot of why we get tactile enjoyment out of our reading material.
I will be in a similar setting to the final panel this weekend--it's obscenely cold out of doors and I see no reason to come out from under the afghans except to refill the teapot.
May also be able to find it here.
