I have Kobo Glo, in built light is total WIN!

Supports epub/mobi/pdf and side loading like a real e-Reader should.

I find the battery lasts for ages still and has a few cool little extras like Chess and a HTML viewer for webpages... it is bizzar and you will never use it twice, but it's still there..

Yep, bought a friend a kobo glo for their birthday. I was actually impressed by it and they love it.

Sticking to physical books myself, however.

Im going to suggest John Birmingham. He wrote world war 2.0.
Alternate time travel back to ww2 history, kinda thing. But he's continued with that story.

epub and mobi would both work fine if converted using something like Calibre. DRM protected epub files need to be cracked before you do so.

nar, an ereader is much better on the eyes long term in lower light,
it can be read in full bright direct sunlight
and the battery lasts ages (i get weeks to months out of a charge, no hours and days)
it weights a s*** load less, so easier on the wrists

about the only thing the ipad does better is porn and movies

+1 for Calibre, what a great piece of software. And yes, Kindles are really good.
