EReaders

so i know there are some book lovers on this site and i was wondering if anyone has any experience with any of the ereaders out there.

we are seriously considering getting one for hubby so he doesn't have to pack a bunch of books with him when he goes out on a job

the main one that we are looking at right now is the kobo ereader

so ya any experience good bad or otherwise would love to hear it and know if it's worth the money

my biggest fear in spending the money on it is not finding enough titles that he'll want to download and read. he's pretty specific on what he likes for books

welcome to alberta we eat cow, drill oil and rope calves

wants to push you down a flight of stairs to see if you are like a slinky or if you bounce like a ball... either way, I am quite sure I will be amused

I prefer the old fashion way of reading actual books just like how I like reading The newspaper in print

the ipad was built for readers, but has a lot of other cool stuff built in. it's like an ipod touch except bigger and you can buy and read books on it.

but it is probably more pricey than all the other ereaders.

no actual books is what we want it for. and i like the ereader cuz ya it's cheap and it works like an ipod/ipad does where he can link it to his laptop or to his blackberry

i prefer holding onto a book as well but with him being gone for upwards of 40 some odd days at a time that's alot of books to pack when you need the space for clothes and stuff lol

Never really heard of the Kobo. Have you thought about Amazon's "Kindle"?

haven't looked at the kindle yet. will go do some research on that one

i found the kobo from the chapters/indigo website. and that one led me to the sony ereader, but then i went back to the kobo cuz the book selection from their online store is 100x times bigger then sony. the books are more expesive through them, but the reader itself is alot cheaper and gotta go for the overall selection too. going to do no good if we buy a reader for him and there's no books that he wants to read lol

off to look at the kindle. thanks guys

You're welcome.
The Kindle came out before sony's..and since it's amazon..their selection is reportedly massive.
