I bought a PDA to hold all of my medical stuff (at the time most of us in the medical community used PDAs to easily store reference stuff). The PDA had a few ebooks loaded on it and I liked how easy it was to find and read ebooks on it. I started to do research and stumbled onto ebook readers. I bought a Sony PRS-505, learned how to strip the DRM off of my large mobi library, shifted them to Sony's format, and never looked back.
