很開心呢~~

If you do, what device do you use ?

I have an eee-note. It's a great e-reader device from Asus.

There is no backlight, so I can use it for many hours without hurting my eyes.

I also have a new Samsung Galaxy 2.

There is a nice app that provides lots of books for me to read.

 

Tell us about you e-book reading habits and experiences......
