I'm debating buying an Ebook reader. I'm torn between the Kobo and the Sony readers. The Kobo is just a basic reader with no extras. The Sony touch offers the ability to bookmark and to underline. Of course, it costs $150 more than the Kobo. Then there is the Kindle and I'm intrigued by the wireless aspect of it.
Does anyone here have any experience with Ebook readers and could advise me?
Right now I use my netbook to read ebooks, I use the mobi application that works quite well and I have a program that lets me rotate the screen so I can hold it like a book. However, I'd like something even more portable than my netbook.
I've heard the kindle is really nice. Have you thought about an iPad or iPod touch? You can get books on those also.
I've had an iPad for just over a month now, and it does a lot of things as well as working as an eBook reader. I'm about to take it on my second trip since getting it, and in addition to carrying a few dozen books to read, it's got my calendar, I can write on it, I get email and net access wherever I have WiFi, it's an iPod... well, you get the idea.
I was thinking of something smaller than a Ipad though, and a bit cheaper.

What is your favorite ebook reader?Also, if you do not use a traditional ebook device (if there is even such a thing now) what software do you use and on what device?

Is it advisable to have an ebook reader before writing an ebook? I've never used one, I'm not sure if that matters. Any advice would be great.

I recently got a Dell Mini 9 computer and I'm trying to find an ebook reader for Windows XP that will allow me to change the orientation when I am reading so that I can hold the computer like a book. Does anyone know of any programs that would do that?
