How is reading on the phone? I've yet to download books to the iphone, I can manage the internet and email just fine, but think reading a book on that tiny screen would be too much. I should just at least try it and see lol!

I love it...my nook actually syncs to my phone now so if I'm out somewhere without my nook I can still pick up where I left ord...it's awesome.....

And you can adjust the font size and make out bigger if you need...that's what my old arse needs to ...lol

You purply can get nook and kindle for free on your phone......with nook I can share books with you too

Grr lost a post.

I read the twlight series on my phone and the help on my phone and nook color. You have to remember one page on your phone is not one page in. the book.

Download the kindle app, then try a sample off amazon, there free and you can see what you think.

I've got the ipad and it syncs up the phone too, so I *think* that's all I need as far as getting books...although I'm not sure since I've not tried lol! And that's what I was wondering, how many words are on the actual page, like do you read a page in 2 seconds because it's only 50 words lol! Well, guess I just gotta try it out and see and then I'll stop wondering!

The books u use locations instead of page #s and each location is a page. Most of the books I've read have between 3k and 5k locations.

I love my Kindle app,I've read about 15 books on it so far. I thought it would be small at first but it's the same size font, you just get through it faster because there's less words per page, I tend to read it faster than I would a regular book LOL, I don't know why, you'd think it would be the same thing.

I'm about $30 away (depending on which model I get) from my Kindle from swagbucks, Bill is offering to front double so I can get the new Kindle Fire, WOOT!!
