At first I did not want to adopt the electronic book format, but little by little I have been making an attempt to adapt to reading ebooks. Right now it seems almost as comfortable as reading hard copy after adjusting the brightness at very low levels. I particularly like the automated search feature. My traditional desktop connected to the internet has a competitor in ebook readers for this purpose. I have used some readers already and I have totally loved the concept. Especially electronic ink. I adopt new technology very slowly but I am not afraid to try. How about you? Are you a hard copy person? What is your favorite format for regular reading?
