Hello from an ebook reading family :)
My name is Terry. My whole family loves to read (myself, husband, 2 sons) and we have embraced ebooks as our main source of reading material for several years. We started on some old Palm Handsprings, now long dead. Then Palm Zires (71 & 72), which now are being used by the kids. My husband and I both have Sony 505s.
My husband has a severe allergy to the mold that causes the musty smell in old books. It was not much of a problem when we lived in dry Los Angeles, but since we moved to Oregon 6 years ago it has seriously reduced our book storage capability. We keep paper reference and homeschool books, but all novels and pleasure reading is electronic in this house.

Hi and welcome!! Lots of book talk here (as well as some extremely silly banter, in the lounge). Check the books you can download, too!

Welcome family! You'll find great info, resources, and of course e-books around here. Here's hoping you can manage to keep your husband allergy-free!
(And by the way: Take anything you hear in the Lounge with a boulder-sized grain of salt!)
