I preper paper too, tho it is not quite environmental.

For a set of paper of document, I would not mind to read it on a device. But for book..no.....Somehow it is just a personal preference, I think.

I am moving this topic to the Bookwyrm section, since it's about books and reading...

Anyway, I ordered the Amazon Kindle 3G about 10 days ago. It's out of stock and it will take anothe month before they can ship.

Is that true that you can only buy books from Amazon when using Kindle? I see there is no Chinese book in Amazon....  :(

Anyone voted for iPad by purchasing?  Any Chinese book?

I also thought about iPad but everyone I know that has iPad just using it as a large iPhone - showing pictures or playing games. I have not seen any book.

Kindle version is from Amazon only. The gadget can display pdf, so maybe you can transfer pdf Chinese books to it?

I arrived at the office and my Kindle also arrived today. More interesting is that Wing also got his iPad. So I am playing with both now.

In the few min that I played with the iPad, I see there are lots of classic books, including Chinese ones, available for free. So far all the ones I see are from the Gutenbery Project.
