What do you do about books on your year abroad?

I am a big reader and always have a book on the go. Obviously, there is no way I can pack more than a couple of books to take with me. How did people get round this? If with e-readers, which one do you recommend? Or are there libraries that stock English books?

    Grab yourself a Kindle. Amazing battery life, lightweight and practical, cheap books from Amazon (that is, if you can't find them for free online...), and if it does happen to break, Amazon are fantastic about repairing/replacing them. Not too expensive these days either.
