Mobile learning and e-books

Personally my experience of ebooks has found while it's great to have access to large number of books, they are generally difficult to use. Downloading a page at a time and using Word Verification every few pages, doesn't allow you to achieve any kind of focus or flow state.

New devices like the Sony Reader look like they might make it easier to read onscreen. Auricle (the elearning team at Bath University's blog) has taken an indepth look at the possible effects of this and similar technologies.
