Has anyone with a 6" screen tried out such books as Clean Code, Refactoring: Improving the Design of Existing Code, or Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software (or anything like it)? Would appreciate some opinions.

Also, do any other eBook sellers (preferably ePub) exist that offer books like this? So far, Kindle store is the only one I've found that carries these types of books.

Thanks.
I can't attest to the usability(I use Safari Books Online with an iPad for this sort of thing) but O'Reilly sells DRM free ebooks in PDF/Mobi/ePub.
