"Good for casual reading, but bad for in-class discussions"

I bought a hybrid tablet with the intention to treat it as an ebook reader, in particular those brought off of Amazon. While it's fine as it is when you're just casually reading books, but utterly useless if you have the ebook in front of you (and everyone else around you has the physical copy), and the lecturer refers to "pages of the book" on his or her powerpoint. The only thing you can probably do is to "look up key words" which may or may not work, causing you to fall behind in the discussion. "Location" does not work for me at all!

Come on! You can do better than this!

Pros
  • Ease of use, for non-academic reasons
Cons
  • page numbers, page numbers, PAGE NUMBERS! According to published PHYSICAL books. Cannot stress it enough.
