    Ebook reader survey... sort of

    I know we have Ebook readers on here. What I am interested in is not which reader you have. But what format you use or prefer.

    With tablets coming becoming the newest thing formats are going to be less important because there will be apps to read most any format. But I am trying to get a feel for what is most popular.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    No, not all of SoCal is Los Angeles!
    I'll be watching this one as I too am interested. What I have found, for me, is that the e-ink screen is a requirement so, I am still hardware dependent at this point in the decision process.

    Back when I had my palm device, I still found Mobi to be the most useful. iBook on the iTouch uses mostly pdf that I can tell, but also epub for both platforms.

    I read on an iPhone. Don't know what format it uses. Easy to read. I like.
