Congratulations on your purchase and also congratulations for finding reading bliss -- I know I have read mine every day since I bought it last March and am dreading the day it might break!

I bet that those price savings are because Borders is hoping for large sales when its partnership with Sony goes live online in January. It's the old hardware/software issue -- make little or nothing on a content-driven piece of hardware and then make lots of money on subsequent purchases of content.

Enjoy it and be certain to pay the mortgage/rent and the utilities each month BEFORE visiting the Borders/Sony web-site!
