    Hey, RJ friends.

    My reading is suffering because I'm doing an hour of cardio every day. Has anyone taken a Kindle electronic book to the gym? Does it work?

    I'm able to read a traditional book between hard sets of interval training on the bike now, so before I spend a bundle, I wanted to ask.

    E-book readers have the ability to adjust the font size. And they all have easy ways to turn pages. Battery life is excellent since power is only used to render the pages once.

    I don't have the Kindle. It doesn't seem like a bad device. But I think the Sony e-book reader is the way to go, especially if you don't want to buy books. I have plenty of books in PDF. The Sony reader has native support for PDF files as well as EPUB files. With the Kindle, you have to jump through some hoops to covert a PDF file.

    Wait a little while. Sony has a couple of very affordable e-book readers coming out soon.
