the eReader

Originally, this blog was going to be called 'Confessions of a Bibliophile' and it was to contain my adventures in reading for a year. Except that reading blogs are a dime a dozen, and you can read book reviews anywhere. I post my own on <a href="http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/7693927-jess-saxton">Goodreads</a>. <shameless plug>

Anyhow, while writing up some posts, and having already done a review of the Kindle app for iPhone (above XD yup, I'm retconning), I thought of something that might be a little cooler than doing book reviews. I do most of my reading on my iPod Touch these days, and have for nearly a year. Many people think the iPod Touch is too small to be a good ebook reader. I tend to disagree.

The iPod Touch may be smaller than your average paperback, but I love that I can carry hundreds of books with me wherever I go. I'm never at a loss for something to do or something to read. If I'm bored with the book I'm reading now, I just start another one. It was especially handy at work because I no longer had to keep a book in my locker (and because I usually ended up leaving them there, I usually had two or three that I had already read.)

So now this blog is going to be about reading ebooks on the iPod Touch. I've already done a review for the Kindle for iPod app, and now there will be more to follow! First, all the major apps; Kindle, iBooks, Kobo, Nook, Stanza; then the more obscure ones. Maybe it's a quest to find the ultimate ebook reader, or maybe it's just because I like to experiment.

I know I'm going to have fun writing this blog, because ebooks and iPods are two of my favorite things. I hope I can add some fun, helpful insights, and maybe we'll find the most awesome ebook app out there in an unexpected place.
