I have a Sony PRS505 and it's a nightmare when I have more than 200 books, worse if I try to put them on the SD card. It takes forever to update its contents, and sometimes it just freezes when there are a lot of books. That, for me, is one essential factor why I prefer now my jetBook. I can literally put a whole library in it and access my books without any delay or problem.
That's good news, indeed! Thanks for the update on this.

I would love to have hundreds of books readily available and, as with your experience, that just isn't possible on the Sony 505. (I truly love the Sony, but it's not practical to put such a large library on it - unless one is a masochist.)

Tonight, I'm going to load the 250-odd books from Fictionwise onto my jetBook.

Thanks,
Don
