Thanks Bill. I was thinking you had to use the sony booklibrary to access the sony bookstore, but I don't think that is the case. Not totally up to speed on whether it is needed for DRM'd books or not.

Yes, that's great! I may do that. It's a brave new world here and I have so much to read already though it may be a bit or I may just have to fit it in somehow.

Thanks!

Thank you for that info. Much appreciated. Enjoy! And thanks for those links..
