Anybody using a Newton MP2000 as an ebook reader?

Hi folks,

I have an old Newton Messagepad 2000 that still works fine, and I'm wondering how well it might work as an eBook reader. I'll go ahead and experiment, but I wondered if anyone else here has been using one, and what their experience was?

The main problems I can think of are the limits in text file size and the nuisance of getting content in and out (ironically enough, my Mac doesn't have a serial port, though the PCs in the house do).

same with me. i realize the original post is a bit old, yet interesting. i do have a newton 2k, as opposed to not having a $300-ebook reader.
anybody out there sucessfully using the newton as reader? and is able to do hassle-free transfers with OS X? i assume even if you convert your epub, mobi or pdf to newton-book.pkg, you have to install it instead of just copying it to a CF-card you can insert into a PC-card adapter and pop it in to one of the slots....
anyway, i would apreciate an answer...
