I usually have about 100 books with me, which seems plenty. What good is any expansion?
has a CF slot. I know....
But it's acceptable to me. Prices are okay and I only need one cartridge, so I never even take it out.
But I clearly find Sony preferable (in that issue): 2 slots with 2 up-to-date cards (SD and/or Memory stick).
How many books? It depends. On Kindle
, I exclusively use .azw from Amazon. Both units are new, so I only have about 150 ebooks so far.
I've got ALL of them with me, all the time. For the moment, I even leave the ones on, I've already read.
On my iRex
I would have to count. But i guess, it's about 800 books.
On Sony 505
, I have 964.
I don't see measurable differences in performance, depending on the number of books. So, as long as I've got the storage space, I'll fill my readers to the limit.
Usually, I just scroll through my library to decide, which book to read next. Sometimes, I read 3 to 5 books in parallel.
So I absolutely prefer, having more or less all my books with me. All the time.
In German we have a saying "viel hilft viel". Translation would be something like "a lot helps a lot".
The more the better....
Surely, on Kindle 2 I probably can carry about 300 books with me, on Kindle DX even more. But why accept such a limit? Cost for SD cards are sooo low...
