eBook reader

People keep asking me what is an eBook? And how do you read it? This looks like one of the best--I don't have one yet, so I wouldn't know for sure.. Off out. Have fun :)

  1. My Dana has an ereader capability, but it's bulky to read from but it's an all in one kind of deal, so I'm not complaing. I would like one of these though. Thanks for the techno update!

  2. I would like one :) And a MP3 player for my birthday. Chances of getting one--zero :)

    Oh well, maybe I need some new nail varnish after all??? :)

  3. The nice thing about this is that all my ebooks on computer now would work--wouldn't need to do any crazy converting.

  4. The only thing I didn't see was it saying it read pdfs. Now I'm assuming it must, but I'd check that for me. Although I could just buy a different download version. I'm excited about them. Especially for traveling. Very excited :)

  5. I use my DH's old toy, a Compaq PDA. It's about the size of a paperack, too. The only thing I don't like about it is the SMALL print. I might get Dh to play with it for me (I'm a techo-goober). Although.......maybe I'll wish upon a star for this one!
