Default Re: Digital eBook reader devices...

It's possible to convert e23 ebooks for the Kindle format (with freely downloadable software), but it's not optimal.

The main issue is that the conversion process hopelessly mangles tables - so I wouldn't recommend using it for books which have a lot of them (for example, GURPS High-Tech and anything else with lots of equipment tables). On the other hand, setting-only books work reasonably well.

The Sony Reader can display PDFs, but its screen is so small that you will have to do a lot of zooming and scrolling. The iLiad should work, but it's still outrageously expensive. Waiting for the Plastic Logic device seems like your best bet - I will probably buy it as well, despite owning a Kindle.
