No gizmos at all. They could only be expected to last a few months to a 
couple of years, even with inexhaustible power, and they'd inevitably 
get full of sand. I'd rather have my book inscribed on durable pigskin. 
It would probably be Middlemarch.

Cheers,
Martin

I would welcome the solitude offered by the desert island to further explore
the Dartmouth Dante Project. http://dante.dartmouth.edu/about.php

The Dartmouth Dante Project (DDP) is a searchable full-text database
containing more than seventy commentaries on Dante's Divine Comedy - the
Commedia.

Many ways to search and manifold discoveries to be made in this wonderful
resource.
