No, not the novel of Bernhard Schlink, nor the movie adaptation. Although I read it and man, it sucked!

Anyway, this is not the current topic. I bought an e-book reader. It's the Hanlin V3, re-branded as Koobe in Hungary. It was a bit costy, 87000 Forints (about 480 USD), but it's sure fun. As for I have hundreds of e-books and my eyes were on the werge of boiling due to them being read on the PC monitor, it's a great relief for me.

I know that there are many models available in the West, so it's more easy for most of you guys. I really suggest buying an e-book reader, for it's really practical.

I've an aging kindle that my first wife bought me as a birthday gift. I've used that to read countless books but my fave ain't a branded thing its an e-paper thing that looks like a star trek padd thats A4 size that my brother bought me in singapore and that accepts just about every format of ebook available as opposed to the kindles amazon only hook.

If you want Dave, I've about 700 or so star trek novels in pdf form.

Thank you very much, I have them in LIT format :D

And mine's an e-paper thing too. It kicks ass!

Have all the ship recognition manuals too.

Me too. One can't have enoughof them. Call me a heretic, but I still worship Franz Jospeh's manuals, Mr. Scott's guide to the Enterprise and the FASA history books.

That's a neat idea. I knew the tech existed, but I'd never really thought about getting one. One of these days I should probably setup my dad's old palmpilot he gave me to display text files so I can take fanfics to read while I have to wait for something.....

Yeah, I used my PDA for the same thing, but it was too small for my eyes :D

That's cool :D Can you put any writing on there - txt files and such? If so, have you heard of Project Gutenberg? [link] Hundreds of out of copyright books for you to download :-)
davemetlesits's avatar
It can process DOC, RTF, TXT, PDF, LIT and many others. t also plays MP3 :D

And yeah, Project Gutenberg has helped me a lot in my university studies. We have our own version of it in Hungary, the MEK (Magyar Elektronikus Könyvtár - Hungarian Electronic Library).

That must be great :-) I've always resisted the idea of one instead of real books, but it would be wonderful to be able to curl up and read things that otherwise would be on a computer screen :-)
I thought you might have heard of Gutenberg :D

I like real books more. The smell of books, mmm...
Aconitum-Napellus's avatar
I love the smell of books. Sometimes when I was little I used to go to sleep hugging them instead of my teddy. I lost a lot of book covers that way :-)

Paper imbibes memories in a way. When I first read His Dark Materials, a friend of mine lent me the books and threatened me with slow and painful death if I damaged them (not if I ever do such things, really). However, when reading the last book's end, I was crying like a child (it broke my heart that much I had to write my own sequel to set things the was I wanted them to be), and I left the marks of teardrops on the pages. When I told that to my friend, she was actually happy that the story moved me that much.

Yes, I hate damaging books, but I do like it sometimes when you can look back at them and see damage on them that actually means something :-)
I'm so happy that my copy of The Subtle Knife is actually signed by Philip Pullman. He was at my graduation ceremony being given a fellowship of the university, and because I'd won a prize I got to have my photo taken with him and talk to him. Luckily I'd thought at the last minute to take the book along, just in case :-)
