For someone who has accumulated over 12,000 books and magazines over the last half-century and will soon be moving to a much smaller house, the Sony Reader came along at the perfect time. Bought a moderately used one on eBay about a month ago and love it. I'll probably want a 505 eventually, when the prices come down and/or I win the lottery.
Now to start banging out ads to sell a bunch of my books on eBay. Oh, my aching fingers!
Lastly, how about a big round of applause for the kind and clever people who give so freely of their time and knowledge on this board!
