I was thinking of getting a kindle like device but Europe is lagging behind in that respect. Not having a 300+ Mln uniform speaking market sure doesn't help.

A nice site: "Feedbooks," the future of paper? With a site like this there is no need to visit a library anymore; if it grows, that is.

Another thought, if ebook readers are supposedly very good for reading, why wouldn't they be very good for writing? Just an easy device where you can write at whim would be very good for professionals, like journalists.
