Gave my presentation this morning to an audience of 5 at Phoenix Public Library. It was fine though, we had a nice discussion about the practicality of e-books.
Here's my presentation:

Lisa asked me which was my favorite. This is a hard question - personally, if I just had to buy a reader today, I would probably buy the Sony Reader PRS 700. I'm not thrilled about the proprietary Sony store and format, but at least it also supports several open formats, including the open epub standard. The Kindle doesn't do this and neither does the Cybook, which was another serious possibility for me and the lack of epub capability is the deal breaker there. The iRex models are just more than I would want to pay. When it comes down to it, though, I want a combination of all of them - some of the iRex and Sony design, the portability of the Cybook, and the ease and accessibility of the Amazon store.
Since I don't have to buy one today, I'll wait another year or so and see what Plastic Logic comes up with.
What do you think?
