Palm TX HandheldDeb Wilson, a Sydney-based Webmaster with a Sony Clie TG50 and an eagerness to help fellow e-bookers who use Palm-style devices, is the new comoderator of our Palm E-Book Forum.

We’re looking for other comoderators, too—people ready to talk up the forum and the possibilities of Palm-OS-based devices for e-books, as well as make sure that questions get answered. E-mail us.

No payment from Palm, just enthusiasm for the technology. The Palm TX, selling for less than $200 used, is one of the best ways to read e-books right now if you go for PDAs. Of course, as you can see from Deb’s Sony PDA, we’re very ecumenical.

Hi, I’m Deb Wilson, from Sydney, Australia. My first “Palm” was a Handspring Visor, and I got it so I could read stories off the Net in planes because I did a lot of traveling for work and hated lugging books around. From there I went to a Palm M100 and currently have a Sony Clie TG50. The readers I use are Docs-to-Go, iSiloX and PalmFiction, but as the latter reads all formats I think I’ll be discontinuing the others. I’m really looking forward to upgrading to a Palm TX one of these days!

I work full time and study on and off with Distance Learning at a university in Western Australia. And I also have two teenage sons, so I’m kept pretty busy!! But I’ve always been interested in e-reader technology and the hardware that makes it work, so was delighted when I stumbled across this Forum. Hope I can be of help to you all!

Thanks, Deb! And feel free to start a topic area for parents eager to get their kids interested in e-books.
