See a Reader in Your City!

Just because the Kindle guys have one =)

I bring my eReader everywhere and the last time I went to the doctor's office I had about six people fawning over my pretty blue reader.

Mine goes with me pretty much everywhere, certainly when I'm traveling. I have folks ask me about it periodically. More of them since the Kindle launched, ironically.

I never knew about the Sony Reader (or any other ebook reader besides my palm and computer) until I started searching for reviews on the Kindle. And that search led me here. I've never seen one in the local Border's store (I think that's where they're selling them).

They Kindle may bring new business to other eReaders as (if) people do any research.

We get a lot of folks who find us because they're researching the Kindle and have no idea that any other readers exist at all. A fair number of them seem to decide that one of the other devices is a better match for their needs, and as I frequently say: that's the important bit, finding something that meets the individual's needs.

Hi jaxx6166. I took my Sony to my Dermatologist's office where I had volunteered to act as a test patient for a bunch of interns. By the time we were done, the damn docs were more interested in my 505 than they were with me. OTOH, having a doctor finding you boring is probably a good thing.

I've been spending a lot of time in darkened "eyes dilated" doctors' waiting rooms lately, and lemme tells yuz, when I turn my reader on and that little gleam of backlight appears, it draws a crowd every time. Also, I met up with another gal in the eye doc's office with a Sony, so we basically ended up doing a demonstration presentation. It was nice to meet another e-consumer. (How'd ya like that phrase?)

I take my 505 everywhere. In fact, I'm going out now and taking it with me. The book I am currently reading is The Back Ice by Micheal Connelly. I bought the Connelly bundle from Sony and then bought the two Omnibus editions (in MS Reader format) to complete (at that time) the Harry Bosch series.

My Reader has been spending quality time just left of my plate or bowl in restaurants lately. Probably not a good thing for the other diners but great for me because the wait staff tend to spend more time at my table.

Well, if anyone is in the Boston area and wants to see my 505, just let me know and if I have the time, I'll give you a look.

I've just moved this thread to the lounge so it'll get more exposure to people who do not already have a Sony Reader or have seen one.

All I have read so far is The Black Echo and I rather enjoyed it. There is another book in the series coming out later this year. But given that it will be a hardcover, I'll most likely get it from the library when I get that far.

Another series I've started getting into that I rather like is the Spenser series by Robert B. Parker. I've only read the first two books so far. I like that they take place locally in places I actually know (Boston).

Once these things become as common as any household item, they can be everywhere in the house....even the (ahem) bathroom.

I've recently taken my Gen3 away on a cruise, and on two (academic) weekend courses, on one of which I used it for the actual study on the course (it was a course on Dickens' "Great Expectations", and I used the version of the book that I'd created myself). In all of these environments, there's been a great deal of interest in the device, and I know that at least one person has bought one as a result of seeing it.
