Very similar for me... but I have a lot more content around than I bother to read.

Daily clippings (iSiloX) with weather, personalized stock news, dailiy devotions, newspapers, humor, local movies and times, political blogs, and sports. 18 of them, but I don't read them all every day. Just there when I want them.

I also tend to clip articles, for me anything that takes more than 30 secs to read goes on my PDA for later, unless it looks like it might not clip well. Usually ones that don't clip well are when it's hard to determine links wanted ahead of time, or hard to select just the stuff I want. I don't clip my favorite tech blogs for that very reason... I don't want to clip all the links to multiple levels, but I usually follow links on interesting articles, so that works best for me on the desktop.

Ebooks... Some bought, some public domain. Would read some pdf stuff, but it's a pain and the reader takes space on my PDA so I don't bother with pdf. I use iSilo or eReader depending on the format, but eReader is my favorite for book reading. Usually novels and best sellers are what I buy, but classics might be fiction or non-fiction usually off of Project Gutenberg. I want to read more from Harvard Classics and from historical documents or some of the good Creative Commons licensed stuff also.

But my book reading has slipped as I've taken more of my time chunks (e.g. at lunch or waiting for something, or just trying to unwind) to watch movies on my PDA. Love both popular stuff and the old public domain black and white movies. I enjoy the relaxed and polite way people act in those old movies, versus the hectic brash manner in most current movies. And I like the old movie music better than that loud stuff in a lot of new movies. And my final dislike about a lot of new movies (and TV shows) is that stupid LA Law camera technique that keeps the camera moving as if someone drunk was holding it. Supposed to make you feel involved in the action I guess, but I hate it.

I don't really generally read RSS feeds too much anymore because it just seems like they're a pain. You only get part of the content, it takes a separate reader, and I don't feel like I get all the content that was on the web site.
