New Sony owner... question :)

Hello! I bought the PRS350 today and am liking it so far. I have one question though... the book cover thumbnail images appear quite jaggy (well the text anyway). This is normal though, right? It's hard to tell from other people's images. I was thinking they're like this because of the small size... regular sized covers and images look fine.

Welcome to M R, S. S.

Yeah, the thumbnails aren't the greatest images -- think of them as a visual way to distinguish among items.

I find that the image resampling on this device is rather poor to begin with. The same effect is shown when viewing high resolution photos.

This doesn't really bother me because it is not supposed to be some high-end photo viewing device, and better resampling would eat up a lot of CPU cycles, thus draining the battery that much faster.
