Thanks for all the advice everyone! So I decided to get a Nook since it's cheaper than the Sonys and still does what I want it to do (allow me to read library books on no glare e-ink screen). I need to save money. I actually got a Nook and a nice Jack Spade cover that was 75% off for the same price of the Sony 350.
I sideloaded an epub from Mobileread as well as a library book. Now that I have been playing around with the Nook, I like it a lot. It's a little heavier than the Sonys or even the Kindle (I played with one in Target yesterday) but it works well. The touchscreen hasn't given me any issues. It's intuitive to use. It's easy to read in bed and much easier to read than a paperback. In other words, I love it! In the future when I get more money (hopefully), I'll get a Sony (because they are truly great machines) but I am enjoying the NOOK right now. It's great!

I leave my kindle all over the house, and I manage my ebook collection on my laptop or desktop (both on a wifi network), both of which are in my bedroom.
When it comes time to add books to my kindle, it's often not in my bedroom. So, I email them to my free.kindle.com account and when I toddle across the house to my kindle and turn it on, a quick sync and I'm ready to go.

Same here for the wifi. I don't shop with my K3 wifi, but use if for file transfer. I only sideload books that are too large to send via email. I think that's only happened once thus far.
I shop for ebooks on my computer. Books I get from Amazon I just send directly to the K3. Books I get from any other store or the library are imported to Calibre and then in one step are converted to mobi and emailed to my K3.
Could I get by without wifi? Sure I could. I could also get by without an EBR too. But I find wifi to be incredibly convenient. And I love the convenience of an EBR.

Congratulations on your Nook. I like mine even though I also have a Sony. I got the Nook last July & have been happy with it. I bought my Sony prs 350 a few months ago when it was on sale for $129. I love it & do prefer to read with it if I'm reading for long periods.
