I adore ebooks...they travel well, and they are great for reading while eating out somewhere, waiting for a doctor's appointment...or just reading under the blanket with all the lights out. Paper books are great, but sometimes an ebook is better.

I prefer ebooks to the printed version. Iím currently going to school, have a full-time job, married and have three young children. Since I have my Palm M515 with me all the time, it is easy to read a little here and there. It is much too difficult to find time to sit down somewhere quiet and read a printed book.

There are typically 20-30 books on my Palm at any given time. I just bought ver 2.5.3 of eReader Pro, and it accesses the books on my expansion card much quicker than previous versions. There are several different apps out there for reading books, but this is my reader of choice and my most used app, according to AppUsage.

There are certainly pros and cons to both the ebook format and printed version. I donít know if any of them are better, but the ebook format works for me.
