300 for the wife

I picked up a red PRS-300 for my wife today. I've been using eBook readers for years and have had a 300 for 6 weeks now. My wife has been resisting the move to the smart side. I put a few books onto her iTouch and she liked that. Today I went out and got her a 300. Five minutes of playing and ten minutes of reading and she is a total convert. She keeps saying how easy it is to read and use etc... Now I must say she had no learning curve. I installed the library and calibre on her laptop. Then I installed 20 books on the reader, tomorrow I'll register her device on my Sony bookstore account. Be nice if someone had done all that for me. Anyways another convert to the smart side.

Regards, Daryl

I hate the term "the wife", I hate it. When a husband uses it, I want to use the term "the Prick". My father-in-law referred to my late mother-in-law as "the wife"...I never heard him refer to her by her name. Thankfully his son, my husband, is more respectful of women.

You're the only one in this thread using the term.

I'll forgive you as long as you don't use that dreaded term.

"The husband" is currently cooking me dinner so I'm in an agreeable mood.

My better half

The best part is she is not even the wife. She is technically my girlfriend or better half or life partner. As were both in out late 40's girlfriend sounds a little juvenile. The whole point of the post was to express the fact that my wife, an ebook sceptic was converted in minutes once she got her hands on one.

That's great to hear. I'm sorry about the tangent this thread took. I don't see why it was necessary for a big rant about the thread title, especially since the contents of your post weren't disrespectful to your partner in any way. Katewilly also had no right to indirectly suggest/call you a ****. If someone here finds the term "the wife" disrespectful (even for valid reasons), I'm sorry but you need to just suck it up and deal with it. It isn't a big bad swear word that violates forum etiquette. I understand that some people use it disrespectfully but there are others who don't, and believe it or not, many wives are totally okay with being called "the wife".

Anyways, back to OPs post - Enjoy having your partner hooked onto her ebook. I know what it's like. I got my fiancee the PRS-505, and I've been formatting and uploading books for her and she hasn't put that thing down!
