Yeah, I had heard some of them had an SD card slot, but I wasn't sure if that just expanded the storage to increase the number of ebooks you can buy from their service, or allowed you to put the card in your computer to put some books on it and then read them on the reader.

Amazon has a computer-based reader which I believe syncs with the Kindle. Not sure about the Nook, but the Nook does have the option of adding SD cards so you have more than 2GB worth of data.

Does anyone know which one best lends itself to allowing you to put ebooks from your computer on it?

I'm not an eBook reader...yet.

My main concern (which applies to all eBook readers) is the DRM lockin. I rather despise the whole 'we can delete your books at any time' attitude of Amazon, etc.

Everything I have heard about the Kindle I like, except for the 'you are just leasing the books and we can delete them', the 'you can download the books as many times as you want, unless you can't', and the disabling of the text-to-speech on the flimsiest of whines from the completely-without-a-case Author's Guild (who does NOT speak for all authors).

eBooks are still being hamstrung by publishers who range from wanting the eBook market to be the same as the regular book market, to wanting to kill it, fast. Only a few (such as Baen) seem to have a clue.

I'm using Kindle on the iPhone. (Living Without God, by Ronald Aronson was I think the first ebook I finished on the iPhone Kindle reader)

Anyway, I probably will be getting the Kindle or the Nook sometimes in January, but I'm trying to hold out to see what else comes along or if the prices go down some more.

My eBook is computer-based at the moment. I've been debating which reader (Kindle, Nook, etc) to pick up.
