I went on a download-athon on a few free sites, especially after installing FBReader which I prefer over the built-in PDF reader.
I haven't got a dedicated ebook device, but I after getting my feet wet with ebooks on the XO, I can easily see this becoming a regular habit for this avid reader of paper books.
If you were to use it strictly for an eBook reader how long will the battery last?
