2011 has seen many e-readers arrive on store shelves; a new generation of “touch screen” devices including the Nook Simple Touch, Kobo eReader Touch, and i-River Story HD. They all have a capability of loading user created content, so the question arises; how well can they support my legacy documents? The answer might be surprisingly well. After we understand the capabilities and some of the limitations we will explore how we can re-purpose older documents and prepare new LaTeX documents for use with these e-readers.
