All of this makes it unacceptable gadget for reading books. So, I don't care how many books would be available on this particular gadget if when I read a book I hold in my hand something so monstrous. When I hold in my hands Sony Reader, I hold something that is almost like a printed book and that is what I need.
Okay, I completely agree with you, astra. (but i still want all those books from the Kindling Store at Amazon)

And I've learned that white really is a poor choice. I thought I'd buy the silver Sony when I upgraded to the 505 recently but in the store I compared the silver and "blue" and the dark blue was hands down easier to read. I was surprised. But I think you guys have been saying that here for months now. Perhaps I should listen next time.
