It's not hard to delete stuff. You can delete books from the reader as you finish them one by one.

The Sony software won't just automatically match everything on your Reader to what it has. You can select to sync it like that but it doesn't happen automatically and is probably a bad idea. If you have books on the Reader, you can use the Sony software to move them around and put them in collections and they won't get deleted unless you really mess up and go out of your way to change the preferences.

I have the m-edge GO! in red for my Sony pocket reader. I chose that one because it seemed to have the lowest profile of the m-edge covers and I knew I'd be carrying it around in my purse. It's exactly what I was looking for -- very rigid so it protects the screen, but not too thick. I recommend it.

I got a M-edge go! purple pebble, hopefully its not as dark as it shows in the picture. I started stabbing myself in the head when I saw the patterns they have available for Kindle readers. They need to give more love to Sony.

I think it is just the colours Sea-Era, SC is silver case, BC black case and RC Red Case

The SC is silver, the BC is black, and the RC is red.

Yep, just different colors. However, I hope the rubberized backing does not deteriorate over time... We shall see...

Mine hasn't, in seven months. But I do use a case most of the time, and I'm type-A about cleaning smudges and fingerprints off of stuff.

I have a screen protector on my 600 but don't really think you have to have one. I'm just used to applying it to all touch screen devices to prevent scratching. It doesn't change the touch screen's responsiveness so you don't have to worry about that. However, I think it does add a teeny bit more glare. As for a cover/case for the reader itself, I don't like to add bulk or weight to my devices so I opted for a adhesive-backed cast vinyl covering.

Its super thin, light-weight and avoids adding bulk. Of course its best for only proctecting againts scratches and adbrasions. I like how it comes in plenty of neat designs and colors.

As for a light, I posted a thread about that not too long ago and got lots of great reccommendations.
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=83946

Personally I ended up getting the Kandle Light and am happy with it. I chose it b/c it could clip directly onto my reader without scratching. It had a strong LED light source. And it was small and easy to pocket. It also came with a nice storage case, great for traveling. However, the shortcomings are that it uses the disk cells instead of a standard AA or AAA battery. It is not poseable like the goose neck ones. The light tends to fall off towards the bottom of the reader so I clip it to the side rather then the top.

Good Luck!
