You've done a lot of work comparing formats and devices, and find it very hard to decide which to buy.

As you've illustrated, there is no "best" eReader. It is the person using the eReader that gives value to the eReader. If the person prefers ePub over Mobi, then the Kobo is better than the Kindle; if he prefers a physical keyboard over a soft one, then the Kindle Keyboard is better than the Kindle 4; if he prefers eInk over color, then the Nook Simple Touch is better than the Nook Color; if he prefers a big screen, then the iPad2 is better than the Palm TX. What else does he prefer? Battery life? Buying eBooks in Australia? 3G access? Book capacity? Etc.

So, if it's hard for you to decide, try not to worry about making the wrong decision; instead, think how hard it will be to make any wrong decision at all! You can read any eBook you acquire on any of the eReaders out there (though some might need massaging with Calibre), so buy the one you like best, or just buy the cheapest you can find. In the US, you can try out most of the leading models by stopping by 2-3 stores.

Then don't look back.

You can remove the adverts, and then add your own choice from the internal library
