I can 2nd the Clie. I just scored an NX73v at a thrift store in Santa barbara for just $16....LOVE it as both a PDA and a ebook reader. It is small and can fit in my pocket.

It is essentially a Palm with a Sony name as it runs Palm OS 5.0.

Loaded up Mobipocket and some test books from Baen...reads well. With the color screen turned down it is still quite readable. And the likely 4ish year old origiinal battery is still giving about 2.5hrs battery life playing chess and about 2.5-3.5hrs reading. With a new battery they say I'll get a solid 5hrs. Of course replacing the battery is not a task for the timid...not to worry I have a plethera of hammers handy on my "operating table".

It also can be used while sitting in it's cradle so that helps battery life while working at my desk.
