Hi from a UK biblio geek freak

Just a quick hello to everyone.

As you can guess from the title above my two main vices are reading and gadgets.

When it comes to vices the books, and gadget magazines are my biggest addictions. On the tech side, as you can probably guess, my mac is my favourite toy, as well as my iPod, my XDA, my iPod, and well you get the idea

I've tried reading on most devices but the honest to goodnes truth is that, so far, I've not found anything that comes close to good old paper.

Recent things I've heard about e-ink devices makes me think that might be about to change

Well for reading and gadgets you've come to the right place! It's a good combination. And the mobile gadgets are getting better and better. It's a good hobby to have (if you can bear the sucking sound from your wallet)!

There are a lot of people that really prefer to read on paper, but I like electronic form even on a smartphone with the tiny screen. And I think many more people will be converts when they see the display technology improve, even with this next set of e-book reader devices with the e-ink. You might just be one of them.
