I like it in one very limited case.  When I'm flying.  I read very
quickly (like I'm sure a number of people here do) and when I'm 
going to be on an airplane or in an airport for 8-12 hours, I'd rather
have fewer larger books than more small books.

However, I have my limits.  As examples, Donaldson and Jordan are
on the, "I'd rather read Ludlum" side.
