I am relatively new hear as well. you should look around in the Forums There are several e-readers that fit most of your qualifications. The newly released Kindle is the talk of the forums now. But, there is also the Cybook, the Hanlin,
the iRex iliad and a few more. All seem to have their pluses and minuses.

I for one am still with my pocket pc, waiting for a mini eink reader to come to the market.

Good luck!

- must read DOC and PDF (she's not interested in downloading ebooks, surfing the web or playing MP3 files, only in reading the manuscripts she receives)
- must be comfortable to read
- must turn pages rapidly (she needs to read fast)
- must have at least 12 hours power autonomy
- mustn't weigh a ton
- bookmarking and note entry a plus
- price not the major consideration

You who are experts, what device best fits that description?

Thanks in advance,

Tom Storer
