Yes, it was only a matter of time before I weighed in on this subject. For my birthday, which is in February, I purchased a Micro Velocity Cruz Reader. I did mass amounts of research before my purchase, but ultimately became enamored with the bright color screen and android operating system. Unfortunately, it stopped working last week. Granted, my jail breaking it probably contributed to that, but alas my e-reader died a sad death. So, back to the research. While I liked my cruz reader, there were some things I did not like, for example the glare. I couldn’t read outside because of the immense glare. So, this time around I fell prey to popular opinion and got a Kindle for mother’s day. Why, you may ask did I choose this? Well, I have a lot of kindle e-books that I’ve purchased and according to a PW daily email a few weeks ago, the Kindle will start supporting library books by the end of this year. In the meantime I can read my library e-books on my Droid X phone. I still stand that the print book won’t be replaced by the e-book. After all, I would not dream of having an e-reader accompany me for a soak in the tub. No, a physical paper book provides much less likelihood of electrocution for that circumstance.
