Kindle may be the answer. The paperback I have been given is in depressingly small print.

Kindle is the answer to most things, provided that an electronic version of the book is available. Overy's account is on the dense side, and small print must make it harder going. I read my Kindle books on an iPad Mini, where the print is hyper-clear although best read in the shade. You can get magnetic soft covers very cheaply, and they fit into the same pocket as a paperback, although much thinner. Searching for and finding text, and navigation, is much better than on the early Kindle machine I also have.
And of course, although this is definitely off topic, it's a rather nice camera permanently in your pocket.
Drawbacks? Battery life isn't as long as the Kindle's, although what are night times for? And I would like to get Anthony Powell's memoirs but they are both out of print and not in ebook. Drat.
