Customer feedback
   “I had scoffed at the idea of a novel translating to digital format.”

   “I quickly settled on Mobipocket
   Reader […] on my BlackBerry.”

   “Count me as an e-book convert”

        “my assumption had
        been that a useable
        electronic book would
        need to resemble a
        Gutenberg book ”

        “Reading on digital
        devices -- real, sustained,
        novel-style reading”
         “the logic of reading a book on a BlackBerry, is pretty
        straightforward: You have the thing with you, so you
        might as well make the most of it.”

        “the ergonomics almost beat that of books”
