I didn't used to like the idea of ebook readers. I like going to the public library for a physical copy, and I feel that the traditional format of a bound book is a rather perfect user interface.
More and more I find that some things I want to read are only available in a digital format, so I got the cheapest piece-of-s**t e-book reader I could find. At $29 I didn't expect much, but it works fine.
BTW, I don't do DRM. There's more than enough unrestricted stuff out there to keep me busy forever.
