I've started using my PDA to read e-books. I originally bought it intending to use it for that, but until I was fitted for reading glasses I found the screen too hard to read. There are websites selling e-books, and others with public domain texts in one or another of the many competing formats, but I find it easiest to go to Project Gutenberg, download a public domain text, and convert it to Palm .DOC format. MemoWare has info about how to do the conversion, and to get ideas about what to read, I check great books lists online. Even with my modest 8 Mb of memory, I can carry around thousands of pages in a device smaller than a paperback book.
