Yay, I am so glad that the code worked for you! Btw, let me know if you would recommend "The Best Book Of Useless Information Ever". I nearly picked that title last night. I need some funny materials after "...Splendid Suns."

I liked it. Read a couple of chapters. Nothing Earth-shattering. I think I'm not totally in love with it because I could have gotten something like the Disney book instead with a lot more substance, but it IS an enjoyable couple of hours.

I read two tidbits in the Most Useless book that I had heard in Duel (TV game show that I loved) on TV the week before

DO NOT GET THE SONY CHARGER!! The Reader uses the same charger as the PSP (already tried it myself with a cheap knockoff PSP charger).

I bought mine for costco, which came with a free $50 coupon. I tried redeeming gift code HOLIDAYGIFT, and it gave me another $50. I guess that works even if you don't buy from borders.

Yes, I brought a generic brand from CompUSA for $15. It's from ReTrak and the cord can be extended or retracted. However, that feature is more of a gimmick as the retract mechanic doesn't work well at all, but charges just fine. The funny thing is that I keep wanting to charge my Reader even though the battery is full. I am so used to the mentality of always charging my portable devices that I forget the Reader can last for weeks with a single full charge. Btw, I brought "Walt Disney" and "...Useless Information..." from your list. Cheers!

I have a Costco membership and I didn't see the item when I was there last week. What's the price on Costco? Glad to know that the $50 code worked on a non-Borders member. $100 worth of ebooks is a great value! Happy reading!

It was $250 at costco, but for the 500 and not the 505. With $100 in credits, I'm not complaining.

Wow! I bought my PRS 505 one month ago from SonyStyle. This coupon code worked for me today! Thank you very much!

It worked for me. Brought my reader Abt about 24 days ago.

Gotta add my two cents. I got my 505 at Borders without the discount card but..... with the 100 free classic book deal and now finding out about the $50 coupon (Thanks Mobile Read web folk) plus the great books constantly being posted on this site, I iconsider the 505 my best purchase of 07. Enjoy it.

I have to agree. I got mine in the middle of October & after reading 66 books & about a dozen short stories on it I still love it (not perfect, but darn good).

I finally got my hands on a working model at my local Borders (haven't had the chance to try one out since the 500 came out!). Personally, I like the form factor, the e-ink screen, and the size. I was also surprised to see Borders out of stock of the 505, but I wasn't planning on parting with $300 this weekend anyway.

Still, now that I've actually seen one in action, I have a lot more interest in getting one down the road... even if it's just to see how well my books display on one.

If you're reasonably polite and friendly with the Borders staff and management, I bet they'd let you load your books on their sample, at least temporarily. Especially if you can make it clear you are an author with books for sale, although having print versions of your books available in the store might be more effective.... Can stores like Borders find your works in a catalog to order? (assuming that the physical book is POD.)

I don't have print or POD books... only e-books, which you can get from my site, or from Amazon (though somehow, I doubt Borders will want to promote my Kindle editions!).
