The problem with so many of the ebook reader reviews available on line is the fact that they focus so strongly on the technical aspects of the reader, or readers, under review.

That will be especially true for anyone who might be thinking about getting their first ebook reader. How ebook readers and ebooks compare to “real” books will be a lot more interesting than how the Nook stacks up against the Kindle to a first time buyer.
