    Not until or unless the OverDrive system (that almost every library that I know of uses to check out books in electronic format) stops using Adobe Digital Editions (which is Flash-based).

    I own a netbook, iPad and a Kindle... purchased in that order. There is some overlap of their capabilities, to be sure, but each fills its own niche and each is inexpensive enough that I justified purchasing each.

    For reading, an ebook reader is far better than an iPad, but sometimes you don't want to take multiple devices with you. (Kindle has a great iPhone/iPad app anyway! The book I'm currently reading, I've read it on my Kindle, iPad and iPhone 4.)

    If I had to choose to own only one of these devices, I'd probably just have a netbook, but I don't have to choose.

    I have a laptop, net book, kindle, iPod and iPad. I now pretty much use just my iPad. The kindle app works great and I don't notice any eyestrain - I read a lot (sometimes 2 or 3 books on a rainy weekend). Love the fact that I now have a multipurpose device - no more dragging around 2 or 3 items when I commute or travel.
