I started reading ebooks on my desktop then I got a netbook and I used that but the screen was super glossy and the thing got hot! I finally decided to get eReader because I wanted to read more comfortably.
I bought a ezReader Pocket Pro because at the time there was a really nice guy who hung out here who promoted them. This is how I found MobileRead. I loved reading on my new eReader! It was so much easier to read with then the clunky netbook of mine. Eight Months later when Pearl came out I got a Kindle Keyboard because it's all about the contrast for me. I now own several Kindles. I seldom ever read a paperback but I do still buy them.
