I became hooked on ebooks shortly after I procured the electronic device that started my gadget obsession, a Palm V PDA. I found eReader.com, started purchasing books, and never looked back, buying new books in electronic format more often than not. I’d always had a Palm OS device since that fabulous Palm V, at least until the iPhone came along and I ditched my Treo 680.
Without a native ebook reader on the iPhone available from the start, I pined silently for ebooks, trying out an Amazon Kindle for a little while. Then the App Store opened.
