How about a thread on ebook readers. What type do you have? How do you like it? What is your favorite ebook download site - free we hope :laugh: Wife has had a Nook for some time and loves it. She uses it daily every minute she gets. I ordered one for myself. I have an Aluratek pro but with my very old eyes the small (5 inch) screen is a tad small so will give the Nook a try. I must admit with my reading problems I have not read a book for fun/pleasure in 50 years - till last week. The reader made it much easier for some reason. I've read profusely for education and study reasons but mostly with great effort. Since study began on a computer I've found reading much easier for me. Go figure, maybe it is just that I'm using my favorite toy :laugh::laugh: We chose Nook due to the mini sd slot and customer replaceable battery as well as multiple formats.
