hi there! getting my PRS-505 soon

I've been looking at eReaders and been a long-time sony fan so it was a natural choice to go with a PRS-505 (used from amazon marketplace). I'm also traveling to Europe in about 2 weeks and plan on taking the reader with me. A few questions please:

1) what is the best travel cover for it (silver)?

2) where can i get some free classics (1001 Arabian Night Stories, Greek mythologies, etc) in a compatible format?

I look forward to learning and contributing on the forum.

Hello Teaberry. Welcome to the forum . I'm also new here and am awaiting my refurbished sony prs505 sc.
About the classics: Have you looked at the upload section here on mobileread?
They have a lot of classics specifically formatted for the Sony.
You can also try project Gutenberg of course, but a lot of the books here are from project Gutenberg, just cleaned up and reformatted for all the different devices.
Just look underneath the mobileread logo . You'll see a blue bar. Click ebooks and your there.

Maryse.

If you're travelling without your laptop/computer, I'd recommend getting a Sony PSP AC charger and an outlet converter pack.

Hi Mary, welcome as well and congrats on your PRS505. I've checked the ebook section here and didn't find many books I am interested. However, I did find this forum with books that are available in many formats including both Kindle and Sony friendly: http://manybooks.net/

It's hard to browse the MR section for books, but if you know exactly what you are looking for check here. I know we have a copy of 1001 Nights.

Hi Teaberry and welcome to the forum. I hope you will enjoy the Sony as much as we do.

Please tell us which books are missing. We are trying our best to deliver nice formatted ebooks in many file-formats to all MR-members. Book wishes are always welcome as long as the books are public domain...

Thanks for the suggestion; I already have both of those things. I even have the lesser-known Sony LocationFree player so I can watch my home TV on the road on a PSP or laptop via wifi

I still would love suggestions on a cover, something not too pricey yet light and possibly spill proof while protecting the screen and body well.

Hi teaberry and welcome to Mobileread. I have both the MEdge Executive and Leisure covers. The Leisure cover is very useful for travel. The reader fits into a padded recess and has a clear plastic front through which you can read. Although not waterproof, it is water resistant and very handy for the pool, boating etc. I use mine at the gym and also on travel, placing the reader into the padded recess screen first.

Check here for details http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...ighlight=medge
