Performance Improving Technology: Reading a PDF on an E-Reader

With every passing day, I get more and more notifications that the publications I have a subscription to either are going digital or have the option for a digital download. I always opt for the digital subscription because I do not have to wait for the issue to be sent, and I do not have to worry about the clutter of several magazines every month and debating which to throw away and which to keep. I just keep them all in my digital library.
