    Just wondering what everyone does with their books once they are downloaded. Print out a copy and read it? PDA/phone? Just sit at the computer screen?

    I just sit at the computer screen. it's pretty annoying, because after a while my eyes begin to hurt, and I can't read anywhere else (not a laptop).
    Printing out a copy is not realistic (at least for me) 'cause I'll have to sell my house for that amount of ink...

    Those people who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.

    I'll be more enthusiastic about encouraging thinking outside the box when there's evidence of any thinking going on inside it. (Terry Prattchet)

    I normally begin at the beginning and work my way through to the end...

    I usually read comics through CDisplay, and ebooks through Adobe Acrobat. - Dare To Believe?

    On the PC display but it does get to my eyes after a while though.

    They have these special e-ink books now that are like real ink and dont affect your eyes negatively, amazing piece of technology really.

    Shame they cost so much.

    By the way where do you guys get your ebooks from?

    Alice in Wonderland, anyone?
    ‘Begin at the beginning,’ the King said gravely, ‘and go on till you come to the end: then stop.’
    But more to the point - I like .lit files the best. The reader is pretty handy, the formatting is usually not messed up, and if you tilt your LCD 90 degrees, it's easy on the eyes and neck as well.
