What Ebook reader are you guys using?

I am looking to put an ereader on my 6800, and I haven't used one in a while. I love the scroll wheel and think that will make reading a joy on the great screen. WM6? What are you guys loving to read your ebooks?
Thanks.

I use Microsoft Reader like I have for many years. Seems to work quite well on the 6800.

Now if only there was a good option for PDF eBooks. The Adobe Reader LE has no acceptable way to avoid horizontal scrolling and slow refresh of the newly-visible area.

Microsoft Reader? How do you get it to work on the 6800 ? I could never get it to work on my 6700? Do you have the cab?

I just downloaded and installed it from Microsoft's site. Installed without a hitch. And no, no CAB, I just ran the appropriate installer over ActiveSync.

Thats right.. I remember now... I had no way of activating reader... I had it on my devices prior and was never able to get MSFT to erase those and reactivate me.... so that is a no go.
Oh well.

I may be mistaken, but I think those activations eventually expire. Might be worth trying again.

Another reader I use (in addition to MS Reader which is still my favorite and all I would use for .LIT) but I started reading one that was an .htm and I believe it works for PDF also. Long story short it is called uBook Reader. I can't remember if it's free or not but I'm pretty sure it is. I do like it though. Check it out and let me know what you think.
