Computer Books on the 505?

I have noticed that the sony store had a few OS books I would like to try, Before I spend the 40 Bucks I would like to know How many of you have read technical books on the 505? I am not talking about PDF's but actual books from the Sony store that deals with either how-to subjects or Computer Programming. Would you recommend it or should I just get the real Book? How are the Screen shots?

Thanks,
Jerry

Jerry, I've got 'SQL Demystified' from Sony and it reads fine. Mind you, since it's SQL there aren't a lot of illustrations.

Main problem I have with tech books on the reader is that it's difficult to flip back and forth and search. Jumping to a later or earlier chapter is a lot easier in a pBook than and eBook

I was looking at
Cocoa- Programming for Mac- OS X
Special Edition Using Mac OS X Leopard
But I am still waiting to hear back from Sony because the Kindle version of both of these is 28 bucks compared to Sony at 40. It is such a shame that there cant be a universal format and pricing for ebooks. Print is Print really the only difference I had to think about before was Hard back or paper. Now it is keep my fingers crossed and hope Sony get a title in that I want. Or go thru the steps to convert another format.

To be honest, I feel that the current batch of readers are not all that wonderful for reference books where you want to be flipping and jumping around.
