Perhaps "nearly everybody" is stretching the truth a little, but certainly a "significant minority" of people have a mobile phone or PDA that can run MobiPocket Reader. Whether or not reading on a phone screen is a satisfactory experience is more open to question, but nonetheless I think many people would be surprised to learn that they already own a device which can be used as a bookreader.
