It was very much an emergency backup, though. It wasn't until eInk that I was really happy to read from a screen.
I tried finding books for my Palm Pilot, but I couldn't quite figure out how to find and download books that I was interested in reading. I read these threads and I think I didn't try hard enough back then.

I started reading Tom Sawyer on my Compaq iPaq, but I didn't make it very far. I couldn't figure out how to find ebooks for that device either.

The first ebook I read to the end -- not including online fan-fiction -- would have been on my Sony PRS-505 and I *think* that was Sleeping with Schubert: A Novel by Bonnie Marson.
