It's the best e-book reader I ever used (disclaimer: I never used any
e-ink/e-paper readers):

  * smooth fonts (225 pixels per inch)
  * fits into a pocket (I read in the elevator)
  * integrated stand

Same here, only I used Palm m500 and a Palm Tungsten T for that purpose.
WeaselReader rocked.

Evince for PDFs.  The bundled Nokia PDF Reader is okay, but it won't
remember which page I was reading when I closed it (or when the battery
ran out, or when the tablet crashed).

FBReader for everything else.

I use OpenOffice.org to convert RTF/DOC e-books to HTML.  Other
alternatives (AbiWord, rtf2html) produce inferior results.  (FBReader
supports RTF natively, but many RTF books I've seen have ragged right
edges in FBReader, while converting them to HTML produces a nice
justified page.)

Every nonzero finite dimensional inner product space has an orthonormal basis.

It makes sense, when you don't think about it.
