Portable Reading

July 28, 2009

A couple of friends have been asking me about the best way to read digital texts. I mentioned the portable readers that are on the market, but they don’t want to pay several hundred dollars for a device that does nothing except read books. And, they can’t imagine trying to read on their phone screens (neither of them has an iPhone).

So what’s left? Would netbooks portable enough for their purposes? I mean, they’re not exactly ideal, but at least they have a bigger screen than a phone and they have far greater capabilities than a dedicated reader.

Who knows. I think if you’re really interested in reading digital texts, you’ll spend money for the proper device!
