Color?

My E reader 505 is being picked up today!! But here is the next question..... What color should I get.

I was thinking the black or blue would be best... looks more like a book. I also like the red but I don't know if it will be to distracting. Then there is the sliver, classic and kind of plane.

What colors do you have and how do you like it?

Also, how does the colors hold up? Does the color fade or rub off after a lot of use?

I have the Sony 505 in RED.
I must say it is quite beautiful. ; >

I just received it today so I can't give an opinion
on how the color holds.

One thing to think about.. are you going to read
it bare or with a cover on it?

Blue is best color. Anyone who owns the red or silver deep down wish they owned the blue

The only time I would think rub off would occur is if something was rubbing against the metal while you were reading (like rings or similiar jewelry).

BTW, black is not an available color.

I have Blue, but the Red is also beautiful.

They come with covers so don't buy one

I have a silver one. It was the only color available to me at the time I purchased it. But, I do like it and think I'd probably pick silver if I had to buy it today.

I had a silver one, and I got a red one for my birthday in December. I have to say I like the red one beter. The contrast between the screen and the metal body is greater with the red one. It's obvious where the page ends with the red, so it doesn't seem so much like you have big empty margins around the text. I think that would be true of the blue one, too.
