I've been looking at e-readers for a while. Did a little bit on a Handspring (same as a Palm) a while ago, but of course, the screen was too small really. I loved the concept, though.
We knew member C6REW from a common interest in motorhomes, and he introduced the Sony to us via our M/H forum. We met at a 'gathering' in Somerset, and a quick demo convinced us. Both Annie and I are readers (with severely differing tastes), so to avoid disputes we had to buy two of the things
Anyway, we've probably got enough to go on for the moment, but will be looking for sources of low-cost, modern literature
