I went to Best Buy to check out the Sony PRS300 Pocket Reader. Appears to work well. Did seem a little slow to change pages sometimes. I would not have problem using it. I think I'll go to Barnes and Nobel to look at the nook to. It supports ePub, PDF and a few others. It's $60 more, but may be worth it.
I wish the Book industry would learn the lesson that the Music industry is slowy learning. People do not like DRM. It's a pain to work with. I only buy MP3's and they are supposedly water marked with info linking them back to me. But I can transfer them from machine to machine, without dealing with the stupid license files. Makes backup's easier to.
