Reading on the Run - Kindle and Palm Tungsten

Keeping up with many of the fascinating articles on the Internet, about two of my favorite recreational topics, The Socratric Method and Sherlock Holmes, is a challenging task.  To faciliate portable versions of these articles, I generally follow this sequence.  When I find a web page with content worth of study, I save it in Surfsaver, under an appropriate category.  Opening the article in Surfsaver, I can then  convert copies to .htm and .txt formats. 

For Kindle compatibility, I send the .htm copy to for conversion to .azm format, which I then transfer to my Kindle.  This permits reading, highlighting, and noting on the device.  The highlights and notes can also be transferred back to my desktop computer.

For even greater (pocket) portability with the Palm Tungsten C, on my desktop I convert the .txt file to .pdb format using a free program DropBook.  Then I transfer those files to the Pilot, reading highlighting, and noting the articles with eReader.

With added flash memory, The Kindle and Palm can hold thousands of articles and books.  The Kindle is larger and can also download books, articles, newspapers, magazines, and blogs.  The Pilot is smaller, but has a backlit screen for reading in low-light situations.   Neither has the sensuous feel of a real book, but their portability and convenience are outstanding, especially when you are traveling or have some waiting time for an appointment.
