First Week with a new Sony Reader 505
Hi - for people who are considering a Sony, I wanted to say that I completely LOVE it.
I have several full bookcases, and couldn't face adding more, so I decided to look for a digital solution. After reading the reviews in the forum, I ordered a Sony from R&J from New York. (Since I'm Canadian, the Kindle wasn't an option)
I found it to be quite foreign the first day, and thought I'd made a mistake. However, now that I've had a chance to really make friends with it, I couldn't be happier.
It's sleek. It's compact and fits in my purse. I can prop it up in bed and keep my hands warm under the covers (u-shaped neck pillow from the airport - small beanbag type). There is years of free reading on the internet. The battery lasts well, and I can even keep reading while it recharges with my PSP charger.
Best of all, I will never again have to stagger through airports with pounds of books on my shoulders. It's fantastic!

Glad to hear it Victoria, I've had mine for about a month now and I feel just as you do.

Hi Victoria. I got a 505 back in January and really like it a lot. I especially like the fact you can take a small library with you on a trip in the space of a notebook. Given the choice I prefer print books but, OTOH, I've already plowed through eight digital novels on my 505.
And contrary to what you might hear, I did not get the 505 so I could occasionally read a chapter or two at work without my boss catching on. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

I'd rather read fiction on the eReader 505. For books with colour pictures or formats that are too large for the Sony screen (coffee table type books and stuff) then they are best as real books. But for novels, web page, magazine and newspaper articles from the web(converted to RTF in Word), then I much prefer using the 505.

Just finished my first week with my Sony 505 and I love it. I've been converting like a madman, trying to replicate my paper book collection. Things are going well. The abundance of tools available makes everything work. I applaud everyone who's put time into making this device better.

The tools and support on this site have transitioned this device from cool to indispensable.
Wish you many happy hours of reading.
