What kind of LOSER reads books whilst on holiday?
OK, OK. I did that too last year.
Something to do while the toddler had his nap.
But I personally prefer to bring a few cheap paperbacks to a mediterranean beach resort rather than an easily nicked $100 e-reader.
Closer to home, though, I prefer e-readers in one form or another.
But I've never invested in a dedicated reader.
While I'd no doubt find a small e-ink reader the superior experience, it'd be yet another device to bring with me, as well as an additional $100 for a single-purpose device.
Back in the day, I found the Palm III xe perfectly adequate, and now I use my 10" tablet which, IMHO, is not at all too heavy for this. YMMV.
