Well, Eann, I soon hope to have an iPad but I can read on my iPhone with no trouble. The screen is the same size as my old PDA but now I can change the orientation of the text (make it wide screen or standing), can seemlessly enlarge text and can use different combinations of "colours".
People are not used to it but it is scientifically proven that reading bright letters on a dark background is easier on the eyes than vice versa.
A nice action is also that you don't have to push any buttons on the iPhone or scroll; like with a real book you turn pages by making a sweeping motion over the screen with your finger
