* For people living away from their bookshelves, I can’t recommend an e-reader enough. It is better to order one (Kindle) as a gift—it ships unregistered, with no identifying information—and to leave it that way. Invest in a device that is lit from some side of the screen—a Paperwhite if you don’t mind the price and format restrictions; I’ve spent countless train-journeys trying to think up ways to piss people off before switching on the overhead lights. ^
