I had read about the Iliad and thought it was interesting but too expensive. Then I saw the *Huge* ad about the Kindle and remembered reading about other eink devices. I then did the standard Google search to see if there were other options for Canadians. I very quickly ended up at MR and stayed because of the great information available here.
If it wasn't for MR I wouldn't have bought the Cybook Gen3 just in time for Christmas 2007. I wouldn't have known that Cybook Gen3 take 2 was coming out and bought that one too.
