    If life can be described as the process of making peace with things once considered unpleasant, it shouldn't have come as a surprise that one day I looked down at my BlackBerry only to find Ian McEwan.


    The English novelist, best known for "Atonement," wasn't there in any corporeal sense, but rather in a literary one through another of his novels, "Amsterdam."

    Contrary to all of my previous expectations, not only was I reading the novel on my cellphone, I was enjoying it, too.


    In fairness, it wasn't a cellphone, strictly speaking, but a BlackBerry with a built-in phone. The screen is 2-by-1.5 inches, a veritable Texas compared with the one-inch-square screens common on traditional cellphones. It turns out the extra space -- screens on other so-called smart phones are just as big -- makes all the difference in allowing these devices to be literature-friendly.

    Excellent article. I have used Mobipocket and it's a nice reader. I use it for medical apps but have had a couple books on it too. I think more and more people will begin to read on blackberry type devices.
    Never wanted to be a simple man...
