Five/Six months ago when I was trying to decide between a Kindle or Nook, I realized that just about every question or concern I entered into Google, returned an answer from MobileRead. Once I had my Kindle in my hand, I joined the site, and have been pretty happy here ever since.

Well, I had been coveting an eReader for a long time. The only brand names I knew were Nook and Kindle. I was leaning Nook because my public library has a great selection of eBooks but doesn't support Kindle and I wanted that capability.

Anyway, I did a good search about comparing eReaders and posted in the "what device" forum. I got some good advice.

I ended up going to a closing Borders with a $25 gift certificate I got from my birthday. This Borders was in an enormous old building on St. Charles Ave. in New Orleans that used to be a funeral home. Anyway, I intended to get a graphic novel but they had the Kobo WiFi for 50% off. Minus my gift certificate and plus sales tax, that was abt $50. I decided to go for it. Its been a fun little device so far. I've had it for little over a month.

In my case I stumbled across Mobileread thanks to Rwood's work. I was looking for the Harvard Classics in a format that I could read without having to be online (HTML files) and I found the Mobipocket here:http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Harv..._at_MobileRead through Wikipedia. I found out about the Kindle through Amazon's website.

I was google'ing something. I have no idea what. Wandered thru here for a couple of months before I hit the registration button.

My Nook...took a bit longer. I'd been reading with a variety of apps on my Evo. But I can't read that screen outside....

Played with a Kindle. It was OK. Co-worker brought in her nook for me to play with. It "felt" better. Since summer is coming, and I'll spend a lot of time on the patio..I was hooked.

I like readers for functionality, and for reading. But my favorite device would be a tablet.

First heard about MobileRead when researching the 2010 SONY Readers. This was after reading multiple books on my last Android phone, the horrible Motorola Milestone using Aldiko and FBReader.

My favorite gadget is... I'll have get back you on that.

i found out about mobileread a long time ago. before or around the time of the launch of the prs 505. i purchased a prs700bc, but i returned it the day i got it because it was godawful.

i've read this site off and on for a few years now. i took a break from reading it for a whole year or so. i did buy the dxg independently of mobileread advice when it was launched.

i've been happy with that.

as a human in this era, i feel that i need an outlet such as this, a message board to express the mundanities of existence every so often.

i have always admired this place, and the more i learn about its features and ebook offerings, the more i admire it. we enjoy a convenient and fairly advanced array of features for a vbulletin forum. a feature such as "forum exclusion" is handy, and i've never seen it anywhere else!

this is exactly where i want to be at this point in my life, online-wise, that is , and i'm happy to be here.

my name is chris if the need to ever address me by name arises, but the user name works. i filled out some basic info about myself on my profile (male, student, etc.). thanks.

I saw three people using different e-readers while I was on a holiday in Hong Kong. My interest got piqued even though I knew about such devices back then, but I think I was finally sick of using my iPhone as an e-reader. I came back and googled and found this.

Once again Google was my friend. I bought the Kindle 3 a couple of months ago and when the Kindle Fire came out, being the gadget freak that I am, I also bought that. As usual when I have an interest in something I want to know all I can about it. I have found that forums are the best way to do that. This is no exception. It's an excellent forum and the people responsible should be very proud.

When I bought my first e-reader in April, a Kobo Wifi, (now given to one of our children for a gift), I looked for a place where people were talking about e-reading and stumbled on this site. It's been a valuable resource and I like the atmosphere here.
