Another Palm IIIX, another Peanut Press selection...but I don't remember which one. Maybe Stephen King, maybe Harlan Ellison. Surely something in the horror or sci-fi genre.

That little Palm Pilot was in my face far more than my Kindle or my iPhone. I LOVED that thing.

The Hunger Games on a 1st gen iPod Touch.

I had not paid much attention to ebooks other than to scoff at the price of the original Kindle, but we went on vacation & I finished my paper book early, so downloaded THG for the Kindle app. Thought it was handy for vacation but still didn't really see a personal need for an e-reader. Little did I know my husband knows me better than I know myself. He gave me a Nook Color for Christmas a year later & I haven't looked back since

Aside from packing lighter, it has an added bonus - my family & friends know how much I love it, so where I had been relying heavily on library borrows before, I now almost always have a B&N gift card on hand - woohoo!

It was probably Of Human Bondage on my Sony 505 followed closely by Sons and Lovers and The Heart is a Lonely Hunter as one of the main reasons I got my first ebook reader was the vast amount of free classics (that I has not read) that were available.

Now that I think of it, the first e-book I ever read was one of Shakespeare's plays back in the 1990's. The "reader" was a 386SX PC. This was when there were all these CD bundles when CD-ROM drives were still new. One of the CDs was the complete works of Shakespeare. It wasn't a good experience, and I didn't finish reading it. Reading on a DOS screen wasn't fun. I think experiences like that turned people off to the idea of e-books for quite some time.

Project Gutenberg was my gateway drug. I don't remember all the titles, but I read a bunch of those on my computer for a year or so. I got hooked on the hard stuff when a friend gave me some pirated ebooks. After reading those on my computer I realized that there were plenty of ebooks out there so I got myself a Kindle. The first book I read on my Kindle was Malcolm Gladwell's Tipping Point. The Kindle was magic for highlighting passages and making notes for the bookclub discussion.

Oh and yeah, I had certainly read various short stories in txt and html on computer screens well before having an ebook reader and Interactive CD Books way back in the early 90's

Stuff from the Baen Free Library*, both on my Mac and my Kindle when I received it.

On the Kindle it would have either been Rick Cook's Wizard's Bane, or Mercedes Lackey & Larry Dixon's Born to Run, IIRC. Maybe Elizabeth Moon's Sheepfarmer's Daughter.

* Which has paid off very well for Baen, as I've since spent over $200 in their webstore, I think.

I don't actually remember. Probably something from Project Gutenberg on a PC, maybe some Sherlock Holmes. My first e-reading device was Franklin eBookman.

Further to my earlier post, having had most of the day to think about it, I'd say it was probably Sun Tzu's Art of War, on my PalmPilot Personal.

Holy mackerel, yes that rings a bell. I did in fact read both Art of War and Musashi's Book of Five Rings on my Palm device! Those were my first. How could I forget?!
