In the market.....
Hey group - I'm recently deciding to join the e-reader movement. I used to have a iPaq mobile with reader capability, but that has been left in the drawer for several years now.
I don't have a preference yet for a type of reader, but my particular needs for a reader are travel related, so I'm looking at the devices with this in mind. I live in the US and work on a project in Africa for extended periods of time, and find myself taking 4-5 books along, which creates bulk and weight in my luggage. For me, compactness, screen sharpness, and ruggedness are key. I'm considering the Sony PRS-300, but am open to other opinions!

Hi TXHorns and welcome to MobileRead. I've had a Sony 505 since Jan 08 and really like it especially for travel.

Hi TXHorns, welcome to MR!
Haven't seen one personally, but from what I've read so far, the 300 sounds like it would be a good choice!

Welcome to MobileRead, TXHorns!
I have seen the 300 and it is very nice. The screen is as crisp as the 505. The only thing that would worry me is that it doesn't have an SD slot for more storage, especially for someone like you who might want to carry more books when you travel. You might want to look into some of the great deals vendors are offering on the 505.
