Waiting for my first ever reader

I've been lurking here for quite some time now and I've learned a lot
From the threads that I've read, I am now buying the PRS-600.
The Sony readers are unfortunately not available in my country so when my friend went to London, I asked him to buy me one.... That was 3 weeks ago. He's gonna come back this Monday with my new reader. I hope he gets me the red one. But any color is fine as long as I get one.
I've been reading ebooks for years but only on my pda. I am now preparing myself to be blown away.

Thanks! i can barely contain myself.
Now, my problem is the cover... Where can i possibly get that here. I may just make one myself but I doubt if it can be sturdy enough and I wanted something waterproof. I live in a tropical area where it rains for half a year. (possibly even more )

How exciting for you!! I bought my ebook reader in March of this year and I love it more and more with each book I read. I also just got the ipod touch so I'm set for a good long while. Have fun reading. I can't wait to hear how you like it.

Congratulations I'd suggest an M-Edge cover, but it's not completely waterproof... when are you going to be needing the waterproof part? (I mean, always or when putting the PRS-600 away )

Hi!
I just received my reader.
It was nice and sleek.
Hmmm, i was wondering, I was charging it and the usb icon was seen from the screen. However the manual said that the status light would indicate that it was charging. I don't see mine lighting up. Or do I have to install the software first? I did turn on the reader prior to charging though. I am so paranoid about these things.

EDIT:
I got it to work. I turned off (Unlike before when it was just asleep) the device and charged by USB to my desktop.
The reader is mighty fine. I guess the first on my agenda are the Harvard Classics. And some other books that I had no time to read.

Oooh,I think I'll be going to Hello Kitty and get myself a journal or organzer and make a DIY bookcover. I don't foresee myself using the sleeve. What with my netbook and other stuff in my bag, its bound to get crushed. Maybe a hard dvd box as well?

Oh! I'm gonna use the waterproof part while the reader is in the bag...
Btw, It rained here non-stop for 9 hours last saturday.

OOOOW. I live in a rather humid climate but oooooowwwwwww. 9 hours.

As for the case- a dvd holder? There are cases in plastic and tin. When you're reading you can use the anything else, but while in the bag I've found it's a nice system- I have a tin one, with lining in foam for extra protection, never let me down. There are also sites that have them already "layered". And you can customise it rather easily...

Yeah!!! I looked at and considered the 600 again yesterday, but ended up deciding to purchase a second (discounted) 505 from the clearance shelf at the local Target store.

I don't think I could take the constant rain any more than the dark of winter in AK.....
