||Widespread distribution of electronic book readers, commonly called “e-readers” seems to have taken off seriously over the last year. Although the first e-readers popped up almost twenty years ago, last year’s market appearance of a completely reworked Amazon Kindle 2, a new series of Sony PRS readers and several Bookeen & Cybook devices made e-books quite popular.
