I'm running out of room for books and I need to clear some space, so I'm looking at something like the Kindle from Amazon or some other manufacturer. I'm worried about how "readable" the screen is and what kind of light is needed.

I've been using one for years. It's called "Book."

Thanks for the input! Tell me more about these "books", they sound like they are the answer to my already mentioned space issue!

The kindle's actually really great. My mom got one and she's nuts about it. The text is really readable. I still prefer books, but I'm totally down with the kindle.

They're awesome! You can get them for free at the library, take them back and they take up less space than any electronic device available!
Also, they don't require a few hundred dollars up front to get the reader -- you can use your conveniently-placed eyes! -- and they take 0 batteries!

I have a PSP with custom firmware that runs homebrew. There's a nice little PDF reader for it that I use all the time. Works really well.

That Selekta's a real wise-ass!
