On the BB, not for me. The screen is too small, with frequent page turns, and my old eyes are becoming a bit too weak for an e-book on the BB. Now a Kindle -- that's another story.

I used the mobipocket reader for a little while. Gave it up as I wasn't using it. I would only have used it when traveling, and in that situation I was more interested in conserving my battery.

I use mobipocket and like it. I have several work-related PDFs that I need access to on my BB, and mobipocket does the job well, and it's free.

I am a big fan of Wattpad. Love the simple interface, and there are a world of books on their website to download if you can sift through all the vampire fanfic (yuck). I haven't paid for a book in awhile, I just use Wattpad.

(Re-read Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut last night and thoroughly enjoyed it.)
