Q: What ebook reader do you use?
It supports the formats I get books in, and it lets me convert Word and PDF files. More importantly, it gives me a fast and relatively painless way to make notes against the document, which means I get more editing time when lisamantchev has been unsupervised for ten minutes and has yet another novel to read. (That's not a complaint. Honestly, her output and edits are probably saving me a fortune at the bookstore)
The ebook situation is, of course, a total mess. The rights management stuff has pretty much balkanized the market and the only way to resolve it right now seems to be to hope that someone wins, a la iTunes. Though I refuse to purchase from iTunes, so I guess that's not a win either.
And everybody talks about gracefully unlocking the content if they abandon the scheme, but as yahoo music and now walmart media consumers are discovering, it's far easier to turn off the authorization server and make you buy something new.
I don't have a solution. I don't think the current situation helps me get what I want, which is the books I like in nice light portable ebook formats and the stuff I love in deliciously sensual paper. Go go Gutenberg project, I guess.
