I study library and information science in Berlin and I'm going to write my thesis on ebooks, especially in darknets and p2p networks.
I need to learn more about the devices and reader software - that's the reason why I'm here.
I hope I can give a helping hand too.

So -- welcome to MobileRead. I'm a proud owner of an Amazon Kindle and just love having a device on which to read the books which I consume so rapidly. (I have read 57 books this year and am about 1/2 way through 3 others. Another way to look at my recreational reading is the 20,137 pages I've read this year.)
I'm curious about the darknet and other sources of illegally supplied books -- but I'm not curious enough to go out and find the exact location of any of those sites for fear of having to explain to legal authorities what I was doing there. A study such as yours would allow me to satisfy my curiosity, and *should* provide some protection against prosecution. I'm fortunate enough to have sufficient funds to purchase the books I want -- so the "getting for free" isn't as tempting as the "knowing I could if I wanted to" is. So, please share your findings -- not the network locations -- but who is creating the ebooks, what their motivations are, and all that.
