I'm guessing you're getting lots of new traffic, with the Kindle buzz and the Wired article.

I've been an e-book reader for, ooh, ten years? Possibly more. I started out with Tome Raider on the Psion 5, and many a happy lunch hour was spent converting Project Gutenberg text files to TR format... Then I moved over to the Palm Tungsten (reluctantly, frankly). Many thousands of pages later I have no regrets!

Now I'm torn between investing in an iPhone and using that as an e-book reader, or taking the plunge for a Cybook.

I'm tending to the latter... Hoping this forum will help me decide!

Welcome to the Forum. I've used an iPaq for years to read e books but hope to transition to a dedicated reader with e ink. Really like the lack of power issues with the Sony, Cybooks etc
