I had considered many models of ebook readers but i am very limited by my choices because i need a reader that can read Chinese texts as well as English. So far from the chinese forums, they have been recommending sony or kindle. I'd like to borrow some library books from my local library too so i'm only considering sony.
Seems to me your best bet is the Sony Style store then. The Seattle Westin is on 5th Ave. Walk one block west to 4th ave, and look for Metro bus route 25. It goes north to and through the University of Washington campus (the route is actually fairly scenic and could be good tourism in and of itself) and then goes near University Village. In addition to the Sony Style, there's a Barnes and Noble in the complex, at least according to their website. I haven't been IN U-village for a buncha years, but I go past it to go to UW sports events.
The concierge should be able to help with transportation questions, but the metro bus will be cheapest.
I'd advise her to go to the B&N and check out the Nook, just for info - she may want something different than yours!
