Wives love to do that.....actually I think everyone loves to do that.
Or at least it seems like it.....start reading and everyone has
questions lol (been there done that). As for librarian package, that
may be a "feature" so that it doesn't close the book you are trying to
read (if you are a slow reader) or so it won't sleep when you are
flipping the switch. I like the idea of Librarian, but like many on
this list I prefer to preserve my power switch as long as possible. And
there is a package that will turn the pages at a set time interval which
sounds handy (will have to give it a spin) if you don't want to tap the
screen all the time.
