Hi from Ann Arbor, Michigan

First, thanks to you all for creating such an informative and welcoming community!

I work in higher ed and hope to connect with users who are putting ereaders through their paces, especially regarding annotation capabilities. I'm also interested in multi-language features, so I don't entirely lose the bits of Spanish, French, Italian, and Czech acquired in my youth and maybe even can get acquainted with some new languages.

For pleasure reading, I especially like novels about people crossing geographic and cultural boundaries and the genres of history, biography, fantasy, and science fiction.

For annotation and language support features, I'm leaning towards the Pocketbook line of ereaders and will be posting some questions in that forum. I'm also a complete newbie when it comes to Calibre and RSS news feeds. My current "ereader" is my smartphone with Kindle's android app and aldiko.

Suggestions for where else to direct my attention in this overwhelmingly rich site are most welcome.http://cdn0.4dots.com/i/smilies/smile.gif

Welcome anjirlly!

Throughout the year I read nothing but good things about the PocketBook 360. However, the new PocketBooks will have the old eInk vizplex screen rather than the new eInk pearl screens that are considered better.

The upgrade to the 360 is expected to come out in March. Maybe it will have the pearl. Can you wait that long? If not, think about the Kindle 3 and the Sony 650 which have the pearl, or the jetBook Lite which has the reflective TFT screen.

Thanks for forum suggestions and PB 360 info. Having ridden out the impulse to get in on the new Sony + cover deal that ends today, yes, I can wait. (It helps that there's a great public library about a block from my home.) If the new PB 360 is released with Pearl and (fingers crossed) a touch screen in March 2011, I'll be a happy camper.
