Sandy's Chatter About the Cybook
In the first piece -- Introducing the Cybook she describes the experience of receiving and opening the package; between her description and the pictures you feel like you are opening the package with her.
She follows up with The Cybook in Action. The piece gives you a great feel for the actual experience of using the Cybook. If you are wondering about buying a Cybook this is RECOMMENDED reading!
After having my Cybook for a while and reading more than twenty books on it, I have gotten used to the inconveniences of the button navigation that she complains about. And aside from a slight cramp in my right hand and a sore thumb, I have no complaints.

eBooks On Your Cell phone
For those who are unconvinced about eBooks -- here is a way to test reading on your phone that won't cost a dime -- BooksInMyPhone. The site gives away public domain titles. They can be downloaded directly to your phone or put them on your PC and then transfer them to the phone. The books have been formatted especially for the small screen. I was truly impressed. After all, I paid the phone and the books are free. . . All of you cell phone owners that are wondering about eBooks, I say "try it; you'll like it".
