A good reader going for under 50$ would certainly be tempting to me. I don't particularly care about the DRM... I can be 'creative' when it comes to technology. I prefer physical books, but I've been thinking about the prospect of a handheld more since Christopher
mentioned that some of the Trek series going for trade releases instead of the mass market format was part of a growing trend in the literary world. Portability is a big plus for me, and a reader definately wins out over bulky trades. If they do become a new standard over the next few years, I'll probably be doing a lot more electronic reading.
