Even if you do not return it, you can always sell it through ebay to Europe.

Well, actually, it does.
Many other devices have "last read" list.
The algorithm could be very simple.
- you opened the book AND flipped at least 2 pages, the book gets added to the first place at the "recently read" list. In the list of all book it is marked as "being read". You could also indicate how far into book you are.
- you closed the book while opened on the last page, the book is marked as finished in the library and it is removed from the "recently read" list. This last action should be configurable.

The ghosting issue has been overblown in my opinion, under most circumstances you won't notice.
Thanks. Being in Australia I have no way of having a play with it before purchase so I'd just rather not take the chance. Guess I will have to wait until an update comes or Sony release their next reader.

Still anxious for a personal hands-on. Guess they should be available here any day now.

Here's a quibble. Before you have someone (employee) help potential customers with a device, make sure that they are somewhat trained on the device. I went and tried out the Nook Touch today at my B&N store. For the life of me I could not find the buttons. So I asked the employee who was trying to sell it to me where the buttons were. He told me that this was a pure touchscreen and it didn't have any buttons. At about the same time, I figured out where the were and showed the clerk. I told him that indeed it did and this was one of the big selling points. Then I commenced to show the clerk how to use the buttons. How they can be changed at the user's discretion, etc. They should pay me!

Just train your employees, B&N! You might make more sales.
Here here! haha I have to agree with this one.

I recently bought a Nook STR and you would know more than the B&N salespeople at my local B&N do if you watched the STR video on the B&N website.

Training and advertising would help B&N a lot.

Anyone encountering the issue of Nook STR turning on itself after awhile? Even when wifi is off?

I may be able to find out as early as Friday. My local store is scheduled to receive a batch. They aren't doing in person or over the phone reservations like B&N. Was told it'll be done online. I guess when you check availability there will be an option to reserve. I've done this with B&N.

Great, I'll look forward to your report. The Borders stores that were most convenient for me have closed, I might stop at Best Buy & see if they have any demo units there. But unless they've bothered to update the software, not sure it would be definitive.

Finally able to check out the Kobo tonight. Hope they have the latest firmware update. Stock is available, so I may just pick up a black one.
