I guess it depends on what device you're using for a reader. My kids use their iPhones for a reader, which my eyes can't handle. I've used everything from kindles of all types, to iPads, laptops, desktops, etc.
Some books say they are formatted for larger displays, which means that it isn't scaleable very well, or it requires color displays.
Kindles have gotten better lately with zoom / pan functions for images.
I'll admit that Kindles don't do well with PDF's and all the engine manufacturers only let you have engine manuals either printed or PDF...
