Happy Boxing Day! new here and happy

Hi All!

I am the happy and proud owner of a Sony Reader PRS-700 as of yesterday, and read my first 600 plus page book already. I found it very comfortable on my eyes, although I wish the side lights extended a bit more illumination to the center of the page - my plus 40 eyes need the help! (But not so much of an issue that I needed to change the zoom).

It's been easy to use for the most part although I found the downloading of books a bit of a struggle - firewall issues probably, which I need to sort out.

I'm looking forward to browsing these threads now, and learning about how other people are using and enjoying their readers. Even a year ago I would have said I wouldn't be interested in a book that wasn't "real" but I'm glad I changed my mind.

Cheers!

Thanks for all the welcomes! And thanks for the "correction" Wetdogeared, although I liked the pun of "new"fy!

Happy e-reading all!
