Digital readers

I'd never heard of a digital reader until Ames got one a couple months ago.

With a compact and lightweight design you can take the Reader Digital Book almost anywhere. And with plenty of internal memory and a slot for optional removable memory cards, you can take hundreds of titles, user-selected Web content or other supported documents for reading on the go. It will hold approximately 160 averaged sized eBooks in internal memory and hundreds more with optional removable memory cards.

They were tested out at yesterday's Word on the Street book and magazine festival. There's an article about it in today's Toronto Sun.

You know I love love love to read. Though handy, I don't know if I would like a digital reader. As the article says, there's nothing more "magic" as the printed page. But I said I'd never switch to a digital camera either and now I have two.

Would you considering using one?

Maybe someday but I'm not in a hurry.

Maybe, I don't know. I do love the printed page!

If someone gave one to me, I would :-)

But I like the feel of a book in my hands.

That is really interesting.Might be nice for traveling,I always get dizzy when trying to read while on the road.But otherwise I prefer to read a book to myself.One of my biggest pet peeves is being read to,I just like getting into a book and into my own little world. =)
