Hello everyone!

I see around there are many people from USA...maybe I'm the first italian to join mobileread... ;-)

I am lately looking around e-books because I am planning to buy one...just here because I find extremely good place to read impressions and change opinions between various ebooks.. :-)

Actually looks like from specs I find interesting the Astak Mentor one... also because I'm not such a wide-budget man when having lot more important expenses around but I realize having an e-Book today is very useful and very ecological! :-)

Ciao a tutti!
Luigi

ciao luigino !
benvenuto to mobileread. you can definitely find lots of information about different readers here. look in the wiki for some details and comparisons (link at the top left of the page). and if you have any specific questions, probably someone here will have an answer...

when you get your reader, look at the ebook upload section for a lot of free books as well !

Hello, Luigino, and welcome to MR. Please look around and ask. People are usually willing to help with any questions. Uh, but I also wanted to say that people don't usually answer the door quite like ZP did (hint: Zelda, put some clothes on, will ya?). Sorry. It's an aberration, I assure you.

Thanks to all... actually in fact I'm very interested on new Astak's Mentor product and I'm monitoring the thread... ;-)
An alternative are PRS-505 (when will cut down the price) or Nextronix EB100... (for me is enough to have SD support since I can upload there the books and read...)

Saluti da Canada!

I don't know who the first italian to join was, but you're not alone here!

It has been said that Toronto and vicinity is home to the most italian descendants outside of Italy. That's where I was born and raised.

By the way, the 'text' smilies can be replaced with the 'icon' ones. When composing your reply, just position your cursor and tap any of the ones on the right or click the [More] at the bottom there and select from all smilies available!

Welcome aboard!

ciao Nick.... lemme guess rapallo in your nick maybe is your "italian" last name?...

Anyway I figured out how much italians are present in canada when I visited Windsor and I saw there places and streets that have italian name like "Piazza Udine"! :-D

Zelda, maybe me and you could be the two first euopeans who will buy the Astak Mentor if it will be put in market with prices and with those improvements we suggested during the thread like rechargeable battery and so on... ;-)

Ciao!
Luigi

Exactly.... Even though Rapallo is a nice seaside resort town beside Genova/Portofino in Northern Italy, my parents emigrated from Sicily.

There are many cities in the Province of Ontario (Canada) and New York State (USA) that have many Italian influences. And not just bad ones!

Zelda,

maybe when arrived let's make cin-cin with some champagne for new ecological instrument arrived, even if you have already the EB1150! :-D

Nicola, I wish I could come in Canada again to visit at least a big town like toronto, but pple told me visiting Québec would be more awesome... :-D But since flight is already expensive so you bet about the whole journey (except going by tent in camping around.. :-D)

Ciao!

The big cities here are much the same as those in Italy, like Rome, Milan, and even Palermo. It is outside the city core (downtown) that most live and these "suburbs" are more 'comfortable' to live in than the downtown core.

Quebec has more European flair... Ontario is more reserved/British-like.

And then you have "Little Italy" on College Street in Toronto where a half-century's old italian dialect can still be heard in everyday life...
