Happy birthday MobileRead???

Judging from Alex' join date here: is today the tenth birthday of MobileRead? Do we have something to celebrate?

Hi Billi,

I never thought of my join date as a way to estimate the age of our community. Frankly, there are a few different dates that could be considered, but there are all very close together.

We have something in plan to give MobileRead the proper birthday hug it deserves... stay tuned.

Is this the reason why MR does not display properly, at least for me, today ? Neither with Safari, nor with Firefox....

Weird.... Opera mini does the job well....

Ok.. It's not me... Safari on my iPad is *very* weird with what appears to be little ebook readers around the perimeter. Firefox on Linux works just fine.

Wow, coming up to the 10th year! I must be quite late to the party. However, I'm glad to be part of this community.

Better late than ever. And just in case I miss the real festivities, Happy Birthday MobileRead. Here's hoping for many more decades of fun and good information.

Two things strike me:

-That there were e-readers and enough momentum on them to have a site way back in 2002!

-That I was eight years late to the party!

Certainly, mostly PDA based but some dedicated readers existed. See our wiki on eBooks for a history of the entire process. See MobileRead also.

Yeah. I was reading on a Rocket Reader sometime prior to 2000. Actually, still have it in a box in storage though I doubt it still works.
