It feels like I'm the only one who actually read books on such a small device lol. I've read 3 whole books on my iPod Touch. (The Firm, A Painted House and Jurassic Park). And I think it's brilliant. Because I have perfect vision the smallest font-size is just fine (distance of about 20 cm). But the most practical way for iPod Touch/iPhone is laying on the side. I'm getting the iPad 2, so that's gonna be much better though.
