I've really been wanting to get an e-reader and have been doing some research over the past few weeks. I decided to get a kindle but then I saw the new ipod touch and thought that maybe I can use that instead. I'm thinking the ipod touch would be cooler because not only could I read books but I can also use it to take pics and video, listen to music, watch movies, and surf the net. However, I'm wondering how the ipod touch compares to an e-reader. Is it difficult to read since the screen is smaller? Would it hurt your eyes to look at it after a while? I don't want to do anything that might harm my vision. Can anyone who has read books on an ipod touch or iphone tell me what the reading experience is like?
