Just watched the evening News and saw the New Sony eReader, interesting idea but not to sure if I will get one yet as I like the feel and smell as much as the read of a good new book.......... and the PDA or Note Books have been able to display PDF or reader formats for a while now and the real paper books still survives.
Would be nice if the outer cover of the eReader could show the cover art of the book being read........and the full Pratchetts collection on one device to read anywhere is tempting..............em mm???? But at 200 quid in the UK it is a bit pricey.............at the moment.
That is one of the reasons I would like to try one. I like the look and feel of a novel. I am also very interested in the quality of the screen as I couldn't imagine reading a whole novel off my PC screen.
thebooks ere are several websites giving away free of all of the classics eg dracula frankenstien 20000 leagues under the sea. a publisher in america who specialize in sciwar called baen allready have a free downloadable library of about 50 books (ive downloaded about 20 so far)
at the moment the ereaders r about 150quid but that will come down shortly and the ebooks r about 4 dollars each as i cant find any british sites. i believe that this teck is going to go mental and am seriously thinking of trying to start my own site dedicated to ereading.
measuring intelligence by exam results is like measuring digestion by turd length

I'm still not certain about cds let alone another new fangled gadget.
The whole aesthetic experience of handling a book cannot be bettered as far as I can see.Although as Jason says,I'd certainly like to try one at some point.Providing that point is at the end of a big stick.
