How long have you had your eink device(s) ?

I've just realised that I've had my Sony PRS-500 for more than a year. It was on the fifth of this month last year that this little piece of a jewel came to me through the mail. I dearly thank the anonymous people who allowed me such a joy.

I still use it as much as I used to, am pleased with its performances and plan to use it as long as it will live. Of course there is no telling how long that will be but I take utmost care that it will be a long time.

What about you?

Since May 2007.
And it has changed my life in a small way. Instead of merely being an avid reader, I now read and convert books, sharing the results here. Definitely a less passive interaction with the texts. I've learned new computer skills and met some interesting people here too, as a result.

Your Sony (you, actually) have changed our lives, too, Patricia. 969 and counting. You 'da man! Er...you know what I mean.

It's been since October of '06 for me. Still use it every day.

I have read a couple-few paper books during that time, but they were stuff I couldn't get anywhere (literally) electronically, so I don't feel too unfaithful.

Since November of 2006 so that would be 15 months. I read more than before because it is so easy. I took up book conversion because I'm cheap.

Why pay for a poor quality product when you can make your own poor quality product.

Over the time I have been a member of this forum I have met a number of great people and even a Texan or two.

Hey, Texas is OK. I have cousin living there and in fact lived there when I CO-OPed in college years ago. Not even sure it was a state then.

Had my PRS-500 since September or October 2006. Been so long I forgot.

Since 17 January 2007.
Old five-O'-O' was inherited by my wife a few weeks ago. She reads books in Russian on it. I am using five-O'-five from 5 January 2008.

The readers have changed my and my wife's reading habbit.
I am grateful to Sony for introducing eInk to our life.

Me too. One of the first buyers of an iLiad. Still use it every day. I hope it will live long. It will stay in my household even when I will buy a new reader.

November 2007 - CyBook Gen3

And there ae more to come.

I have to admit, that i am neglecting my iLiad V1 at the moment mostly. But its still working nicely, i just cannot seem to let it go.

I received my Sony 505, my first and only ebook-dedicated reader, as a holiday gift, on December 25, 2007, from my wife and children. In one sense, it hasn't changed me at all -- I always was a voracious reader and I did and still do buy, on average, 6-10 hardcover books a month. In another sense, however, it has made a dramatic change in my life. I have severe osteoporosis (one doctor said my bone density is like that of a 105-year-old man) and exercise is an important element in combatting it. Alas, I hate exercise and I'm not the outdoors type -- I much prefer to sit in my recliner and read. Well 2 weeks ago I spent a small fortune on a treadmill and now, because of the Sony, I get 90 minutes of good exercise on the treadmill and actually look forward to doing so. The Sony lets me read while getting the exercise I need. And thanks to Astra's recommendation in another thread for the Verilux light (received it yesterday), I now have a well-lit Sony to read from.

I bought mine October 18th 2007.

Still love it as much as I did initially. It's not 100% perfect, but what is. I've read 86 books on it so far (vs 3 pbooks) & really have no major complaints.
