Hello :)

Hi! I'm new to the forum. I got a Sony PRS-505 for Christmas, and so far I love it. (I do wish it were easier to read PDFs on it though... I've tried converting them with Calibre, but it erases most of the paragraph breaks ) I like to read a little bit of everything, but my favorite genres are science fiction and fantasy (although I prefer urban fantasy to the elves-and-dragons kind).

Hi Enraptured and welcome to the Forum. I've had a 505 for a year now and am addicted to the thing. Have had similar problems with PDFs. Some work fine others have problems.

Welcome Enraptured. You might try Baen for SF/F books. Good price & some free.

Hiya Enraptured. Fictionwise is also good for books - reasonably priced too - though you don't say where you are in the World ....

Welcome to the forum! I don't know if you saw it on the ebookstore, but there is a fantasy download for $1 (Way of the Shadows by Brent Weeks) from Orbit, and they will be doing one a month.

I've already downloaded it and started reading it; I like the book a lot so far. I'm looking forward to next month's, too, since it's by an author I've been meaning to try.

I'm super excited for March- I read Karen Miller'sfirst series before it came over to the US (I had a fantasy review site) and loved it. Empress starts a new series.
