Will this replace your paperback?

So is it a page turner? Well the Cybook Gen3 has its pros and cons just like any other gadget we review here at Pocket-lint, although it has the ability to carry around 10,000 books, you're unlikely to dip in and out of books the same way you do music.

Ebook readers aren't everybody's cup of tea, but if you are drawn to this class of device then you can't do better than the Cybook Gen3. It is a great little appliance that gets a lot ...

I'm a sucker for books and have been testing ebook readers on PC, handheld and as standalone devices for as long as I can remember. The Cybook Gen3 is simply the best standalone option I have seen. This doesn't mean it is perfect. But it is one piece...
