My ebooks are demanding a resolution!

Kindle...Iphone...eReader?? What to do, what to do.

Some time ago, my handy little ebook reader gave up the ghost and said her last hurrah, may she rest in peace. Now, however, I am faced with a dilemma. I need a new reader but I can't decide what to go with. They all seem to have their plus' and minus' how can I choose?

So I thought maybe the best place to go from here is to get some personal opinions. Why did you make your choice? Are you happy with your choice? Would encourage others to make the same choice?

My unreadable ebooks thank you for your suggestions. ;)


  1. Hmmm... I'm no help. I still read on the monitor.

    I like the idea of the 14" size, was it a Dell?

  2. A nice big monitor would be nice for reading, writing and working on my website, but alas, that too will have to wait. :)

    Bummer is, I have a bunch of now unreadable books in mobi format that I need a reader for...~sniff~

  3. Serena, I say the right e-reader comes your way soon!

  4. I wouldn't by an ereader until I could find one that did at least half as much as my former reader (old Toshiba PDA), but when they released a Kindle reader for the iPhone, I finally had the chance to get an ereader that did more than my PDA and read just about every ebook format but microsoft. I didn't get the phone but the iPod touch and boy am I happy. There are several apps you can get to read on besides the Kindle, eReader app is my favorite because you can set the color background and text. And this is even gentler to my eyes that the PDA was. I may be the only person who doen's use an iPod for music, but I quickly learned there are thousands of useful apps beyond the reader apps. You should have a look at one.

  5. Oh Savanna, I hope you are right...I have tons of ebooks begging to be read! ;)

  6. Nara, excellent info...I had no clue you could by an Ipod touch(yep, I'm a bit technologically challenged - hehe)

    thanks for the info, I'll definitely look into that. I hope they have a mobi app...
