I thought this was an April Fool's Day joke, but the INFINITE JEST iPhone/iPad app (link prompts but will not actually open iTunes) appears to be real. I'm not sure how anyone could possibly prefer it, other than the portability, which means less to me after I've already carried it around through a few months. I would prefer not to be separated from my paper copy of IJ at this time.

If you had to choose one book to carry around with you, though, what would you pick? (You could keep and read other books, it's not a desert island scenario.)

will e-book readers kill people's ability to impress one another by the book they are carrying/reading?

How will my fellow passangers know taht I am reading Orhan Pamuk and not Nora Roberts?

How about your NPR tote bag?

They will kill that avenue of judgment only at the rate of adoption, so yes, but very slowly.
