Good to have your company, Nelson. Check out Happy_terd's advice ... then get yourself a Sony PRS-505. You won't look back. It's THE workhorse. Best wishes. Neil

Probably not! to be honest.

Being in Oz the wireless feature doesn't work. there is no clock or sudoku that you can apparently get on other cheaper readers.

This is the only reader I have actually touched so I don't have a comparison, but the screen is good for reading(sometimes a little glare from the touchscreen), and I use the dictionery occasionally. It will takes lots of different formats.

The battery is replaceable, something that I have heard others complain about with other readers.

I still love it. I read books on it, and that's what it is for.

In the few months since I purchased mine(on ebay from US), there are many more choices available, so I think your job will be even more difficult.

The hardest part is working out the features that are most important for you.

Good Luck.
