Really wanted a 6 inch screen, but I'm finding I'm quite happy with the 5 inch one instead! The extra goodies in the basket were also very nice! My hubby loves Starbucks coffee.
So far very happy with the reader overall. Very easy to use. My 9 year old is now begging for one of her own. Unfortunately, most of the books she's reading right now haven't been converted to ebooks. Haven't seen any Magic Treehouse, Junie B. or Goosebumps ebooks around yet.
Got a question for you guys, I was wondering if there was any way to read the free books I downloaded from the Sony store on the pocket pro? I'm not the most tech savy person and couldn't get them to load on my sd card, let alone my new reader. Not sure what I was doing wrong. The other books I picked up off feedbooks transfered just fine. Looking forward to reading some old classics again and few I never had time for!
I have a question for Robert. Was there was a mix up on the sd cards? My card has the halloween stories on it, not the Christmas ones! Not a big deal, just a surprise when I put the card in the reader.
Very happy Astak decided to go with the gift basket for the holidays! Thanks
Thank you for purchasing the Gift Pack (www.astak.com/charity
)!! You are doing some good by helping to feed the hungry!!
Please email (email@example.com) and they can merrily and nicely exchange that Halloween card for the Christmas Classics!! That should be easy and your 9 year old will like that I am sure. Please check though. My tech tells me they loaded BOTH the Halloween and Christmas classics onto the card! You should have BOTH!
Regarding the Sony store, they used to have all of their eBooks in a format we did not have and it was exclusive. Now they are in the process of changing over ALL of their library to EPUB (which the Pocket PRO has ). So... you cannot buy from them yet but will soon be able to do so!!
In the meantime, Books On Board, Diesel, and Powells Books are ideal for EPUB content eBooks. There are a good 300 websites you can purchase eBooks from that will display fine on the Pocket PRO!
Thank you very much!! You have helped the hungry this Christmas and that is great!!
