I use d/load credits to d/load the chapters I want to read and print them 
out on real paper. Then if some miscreant jostles me on the train and I 
drop the stuff in the mud, or if I drop shabu-sauce on some of the pages 
no problem -- I just print it out again. The price for most books (at $2 
per chapter) works out just about the same if you buy it in Japan (or have 
Amazon ship it) versus if you elect to d/load every chapter. But the 
upside is that you can read the introductory stuff online and only d/load 
the chapters that you really do want to print onto dead trees.

Safari rocks...
