Hello from Scott

I am a new e-reader from the American southeast. I was in a Borders store on Sunday morning and saw the new Sony Reader. The display really impressed me as did the reality of a library in my hands. Went home, did lots of research, found this site (which helped me quite a bit as there is nothing better than honest feedback from people using the product), and bought the Reader this morning from the same Borders store.

Fought with the Connect web site for a bit, got it to work after a call to technical support, and downloaded a dozen or so books. Started reading the first of my new e-books. I love the Sony Reader. For all of their recent problems, the Sony people did a great job with the Reader. The Connect site seems to be a bit buggy to me (like a late build Beta), and I hope that a lot of content is added.

I need to fiddle with the manybooks.net site as my next project.
