Anyone willing to take Picture with my book on the screen ?

Hi !
It might sound a little bit strange, but maybe someone will be willing to help me.

I am thinking about buying Reader, but I can't even find one to try.

Is anyone willing to take couple closeup pictures of Reader's screen with one .pdf book and one .jpeg on screen(it can't read .djvu so I have to convert to .jpeg)


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

alexibm,
It is easy to take a photo of a JPG on the screen, but there are many PDFs out there that will give you a whole range of results. Can you upload something you would like to see displayed? I can do the photo if I know what you need.

Thanks to everyone who was kind to reply. I have received personal message from delphidb96 and he will take couple shots. I will post images

My hope - do as little reformatting as possible, since I will be flooded with books and many books come from official sources (like American Institute of Steel Construction)

Thanks

If you have a Borders store nearby, they have one on display that you can try.

I've been to a few different Borders stores in past few months, and they never seem to know what I'm talking about when I ask about the Sony Reader. Now that their sales exclusivity is over, have they stopped pushing it?

May be that's it. I saw one last month in one and that's how I ended up buying mine.
