Got my first e-reader yesterday...
I was thinking about an e-reader for quite some time, but couldn't decide which one... Since I never used one before, it was rather difficult to decide what I really wanted.
But recently, I discovered that I could buy a 'refurbished' BeBook One for 50% of the original price, and decided to go for it.
I already knew I wanted a e-reader able to read ePub, since I want to be able to read Dutch books sometimes, and they are mostly published as ePub. (Amazon's choice of Dutch books seems rather limited).
This seemed a good opportunity to find out if I really like reading with an ereader, and what features I really liked or missed...
I always was an avid reader... I remember that when I was around 25, I met a young man who turned out to have lived in the same neighborhood as I as a kid... We didn't recognize each other, until he seemed to remember something: 'Oh yes, now I know... you're that girl that was always hidden behind a book...!'
Fast Forward about 20 years, and here I am. Still like to read, but I also have discovered computers, and gardening... and have an job, and a husband, and a home and a 14 y.o. son, so there isn't much time to read, but I still like it so much...

Good to have your company, Anne. I predict that you will now read more than ever. One of the great beauties of an ebook reader is that it's always with you to use in those otherwise boring moments like in the dentist's waiting room, hanging around for a bus or train and queueing at the supermarket checkout. Quire literally never a dull moment. Happy BeBooking and best wishes. Neil
