    Hehe. It does seem to be missing them all doesn't it? Just takes getting used to I guess.

    iPad? I tried out a Sony eReader and tried to touch the screen to flip the pages like an iPad/iTouch/iPhone.

    Nope. It's a Kobo :)

    Yes, I tried stroking the screen first. But I could easily get used to it, I think, at least for trips or 'on the go' reading. The Kobo seemed the nicest to actually read from of those I've looked at. (If it supported text and RTF, that would be better for genealogy, though there are 50 'genealogy' books listed at the Kobo site. Some are philosophy but still...) But book-books are always going to be the best! And around the longest.

    Whose Kobo was it? I'm getting a Sony from work for free.... I don't know how I feel about it because I don't really like ebooks.

    Colleen's. She won it in a contest & when I found out, I begged that she bring it with her so we could take a peek. I've seen them around but hadn't had a chance to play with one so was super curious. I quite liked it.
