I could read from a PDA if I *had* to, but I read on the iLiad because I *want* to. There's no glare, no viewing angle issues, and I can read in direct sunlight - in fact it's *best* in direct sunlight, and given that my favourite place to read is lying out on the grass in the sun (goats willing), that's the clincher for me.

Most "active" screens do your eyes in after a while, whereas reading the Iliad is exactly like reading paper, and tires your eyes no more than normal book reading.
