I'd very much appreciate people's advice on choosing an ebook reader.
I played with a Kobo (the basic model) in Smiths and very much liked it. However, reading an online review made me have some second thoughts.
I like it partly because the page control is in a good position for me (bottom right corner), but the review commented that the button was a little stiff and that after 100+ pages the RSI started to kick in. As someone who's prone to RSI, that's definitely a potential problem.
I have to rest my books on a stand as I can't hold them in my hand, thus buttons in the middle bottom are a pain.
The other catch with the Kobo is that you can't load books from Amazon (though it may be possible to use a site that strips DRM - has anyone used these?)
What are the pros and cons of ebook readers that you've tried?
I want easy to use, intuitive menus, simple to use controls, bookmarks, etc.
I'm not bothered about colour or wireless access or annotation, or anything beyond reading books.
