BB Stories as eReader Files

I've had the mad scheme to convert the stories from our writers into eReader files so people can read the story on their iPod Touch (my device of choice), Kindle, or what have you. Pretty much all of the writers have responded and are on board with the idea. But this means choosing a format.

So to make this scheme useful to the most number of people possible, have a poll:

Poll #1586244 eReader Options

I use the following kind of eReader:

Kindle
5(20.0%)
iPod Touch
2(8.0%)
Sony eReader
5(20.0%)
Nook
1(4.0%)
Kobo
0(0.0%)
Some other device I will describe in the comments
5(20.0%)
What is this eReader of which you speak?
7(28.0%)

My device can read the following types of files:

ePub
1(5.0%)
PDF
4(20.0%)
mobi
2(10.0%)
Plain Text
1(5.0%)
RTF
0(0.0%)
Some other format I will list in my comment
1(5.0%)


The conversion program I use (Lexcycle Stanza, which is also my reader program on the iPod Touch) can convert to a number of different formats, but I'd like to be able to just produce one or two formats that will work for the most people.

So what does everyone think?
