I finally did it

It was a three way race....

Kobo, Sony or Kindle,

Kobo you lost out cause I couldn't get my hands on one to play with. local WHSmiths had them on sale as did ASDA for a time but they couldn't be bothered to get one out of the box for people to try. add to that the issues with customer services and I couldn't bring myself to face the risk.

Sony, you came a very close second. I was a little concerned about the issues as mentioned so frequently here, but you almost came through.

Kindle, You are the winner. to be fair I did get to play with one. what swung it for me was that I got to try out emailing a Word file to be converted and was genuinely pleased with the results. The Kindle will do exactly what I want (to read books) and use it for my speaking notes.

Now I guess I'll need to get to grips with Calibre

If you enjoy the classics, Peter, you'll find much better proofed and formatted ones here at MR than the PG versions.

just raided your H Rider Hagard anthology - great work, and one or two that I've not seen before. King Solomans Mines one of my all time favourites

So much to read and so little time
