Post Hello from Canada

I have been reading the posts for quite a while now, and decided it was time to join up. I have a Sony PRS505, that I have had for just a few months, but find that I am using it every day, and couldn't live without it now. Just want to say that reading threads by Kovid Goyal on Mobileread ( and lots of other people too ) have been so helpful and is actually the main reason that I bought the Sony.

Thanks desertgrandma . . . I have voted already and am glad to see that I have made the right decision in buying the Sony PRS505, so far! I haven't downloaded anything yet,as I am still checking out parts that I didn't see before I joined up!!

Hi JenPen1 and welcome to the Forum. Bad news: If you think the Sony eBook reader is addictive wait till you hang around this Forum a bit.

Question PRS505 on airplanes

I'm not sure if I have the right thread. I am new to forums I am planning on flying in a couple of months and am wondering if there is going to be a problem with a) going through security and b) the x-ray machine.
I'm sure some of you veteran e-book readers have flown with one. If I'm in the wrong thread, could one of you direct me in the right direction??

There is a whole thread on this topic somewhere. But the bottom line is, it won't be a problem. Treat your reader as you would a lap top through security. Don't use it during the "electronic device usage restriction periods during takeoff and approach/landing" and you'll be fine.

Actually, Jenpen, there have been reports over on the Amazon forum about the some Kindles being 'wiped' after going thru the xray machine......

Thanks Bob for the quick response. I figured that would be the case, but wanted to make sure first, what with security being what it is today.

I have no way to back up my statement except to quote from memory.

I've flown with my 505 a number of times both domestic and international and there's never been a problem apart from a security guard at Dulles who'd never seen an eBook reader. I had to demo the thing for him and, by the time I was done, he was hooked and going to buy one on the way home.
