I'm using the older prs500 and I don't even notice the page turns anymore. If you use the "-w" option and read in landscape mode the page is split in half with a wide enough carry-over margin that it still reads with a comfortable flow. I imagine the newer prs505 would be even more so.

Note: the "-w" options isn't availble in the offical Calibre release (0.4.83) yet, you'ld have to get the beta release or use the bzr development system:
