Reviewed the next book in that eTo-Read-Stack downloaded from the Tor site when they were giving them away.

So, out of sheer curiosity, what are you reading them on? Do you have a dedicated ebook reader?

My Palm TX, using Mobipocket Reader 3.5 most of the time. It's got a good sized high-rez screen, plenty of storage, and fits in my pocket. So I've got it with me wherever I happen to be that I've got time to read. It does a lot of other useful stuff, but ebook reading is what I bought it for. I don't really like any of the dedicated "ebook reader that doesn't do anything else" items on the market, largely because they all fail the "fit in pocket" test. I also have a program (Mobipocket Creator) which takes a number of formats and turns them into .prc files that can be read by the above reader. It keeps track of my page and also allows any number of bookmarks, comments, and so forth so I can also use it for proofreading. If I want to edit while I'm at it, I can load it as a Word file into another program I have on hand "Documents to Go", which has some weird habits but is still useful. The screen is backlit which is a problem in direct sunlight, but an advantage if I'm reading before falling asleep and don't want to turn on a lamp and wake my husband (he has to get up awfully early as it is).

And did I mention it fits in my pocket?
