No one expects you to take anything as fact.

Those numbers do, on the other hand, sound plausible for a project of that type and size. Including the breakdown between different languages.

Whereas the 500m number is absurd on its face. You're not expected to take away more than that.

I can see how the organization is limited, but yeah, I usually just have a queue of 3-5 unread books. I've only had it for 3 years, though, and that's not a long-enough time frame for me to re-read something.

I haven't found the Kindle to be of much use for tech books and journals: it would need to be at least A4-sized and much sharper (and probably color) for that.

What I would appreciate is better within-book search, and more functional "X-Ray" (that's actually available for more than 1 book in 10).
