Someone turned Microsoft down? I didn't think I would ever read that written anywhere after Intuit refused to be bought out and let Microsoft come to own Quicken.
Sounds good, but I think Palm Reader Pro is still going to be my market eBook reader of choice. It's very user-friendly, and there are a lot of popular titles available by now.
