Long time listener, first-time...

... buyer, I guess. :)

Finally bought an eBook reader (decided on Sony's PRS-505) and now I'm starving for more information.

I also picked up a book scanner (Plustek OpticBook 3600) and have been scanning in some of my books so I can carry them with me digitally.

Anybody have recommendations on a PRS-505 case/shell to help me not destroy the screen?

Hi clee and welcome to MobileRead. I've had a 505 for over a year now and really like it.

I use an MEdge Executive cover for regular reading and an MEdge Leisure cover for the gym, travel and beach. The Leisure cover has a padded inset you place the 505 into then the cover, which is clear plastic zips shut. Although not waterproof it is water resistant thus good for the beach, a boat and at the gym.

And, when I travel, I place the 505 into the Leisure cover screen first to give it a bit more protection in my carry on. You can read a thread on it here http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...ighlight=Medge and get details on other covers in the Sony eReader Accessories section here http://www.mobileread.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=113

Welcome to MR, clee

I have the *BLUE* 505 and love it...

I haven't used anything but the original cover so far and my Reader goes with me everywhere. No problems so far.

Make sure to check out the Wiki and the Writers' Corner..

I used the original cover until my hubby bought me the lighted cover for Christmas. I added a book bungee to keep the cover shut when it's in my backpack.
