I used my iPod Touch to read books but the battery wouldn't last long enough for my liking. I have been using a Sony Reader since February. I really like it because of the multiple formats it can use right off the bat. Also, the battery lasts about 2 months when reading about an hour or two at night before bed. I also got it because it's pink :) I never really wish for wireless connectivity because I have so many books I want to read on the device anyway, if I put any more I'll never get to the ones I already have.
I'm really tempted by the Kindle - actually I'm really tempted by the iPad but I can't justify spending that much. The Nook worries me a little these days with everything going out of business - I think I trust Amazon not to fail much more than B&N.
Does anyone do newspapers on theirs? That's another prospect that has really interested me...
I just recently bought a kindle and only had it for about a month now, loving it so far. But I do hate how the organization is limited, no book cover display on the listing, and zooming capabilities. Before Kindle, I used iBooks on my iPhone to read which was wonderful with the pinchzooming but due to the small screen, i switched to the kindle. Also for its e-ink display which is amazing.
Sometimes i read on psp, but i love to read printed book :D
I'm thinking of buying a Kindle 2, on the sole ground that it runs Linux, and that someone managed to get Xorg running on it. That means Epub support, amongst other things.
I have the Sony PRS-600 and it's pretty nice. It has epub support and my books look very nice on it. The only downside is that the glare is very obstructing sometimes.
Just picked up one of the new Sony Readers and it's amazing. They fixed the screen glare issues with their newer ones, and it also has a selection of dictionaries (someone above said that it didn't. Maybe earlier models but they do now).
I also highly recommend e-Ink readers over anything that's backlit (like Ipads), if you're going to be doing a lot of reading. It really is just like looking at a printed page. So easy on the eyes. And it doesn't use any energy to display the page...just to turn pages. This is why the battery lasts for weeks instead of hours.

I <3 my nook.
EPUB is very important to me.
I'm thinking of buying one for myself for my birthday, but am unsure of what to get. I want an e-ink screen that is large enough to read A4 documents like textbooks and lecture notes off (like the Kindle DX), but I want it locally managed (ie, I don't want to have to email my documents to an Amazon email address to get them onto my e-reader). Not sure what to get - anyone have any ideas?
