Sony Reader cover with light for $30

I was just down at the Sony Store in the Forum Shops in Las Vegas. Sony now has a kiosk dedicated to Ebooks in front of Spago which is at the opposite end of the mall from the regular Sony Store.

For Thursday and Friday only the are giving away $30 in accessories with a reader. They had the Sony Cover with Light for half price and I picked up one for $30!!!

They told me that the sale is system wide for Sony Stores. I just checked and the cover is half price on Sonystyle.com also.

Since I was early for dinner, I spoke with the Kiosk staff (5 salespeople!!) for quite a while. They had all gone to special training for the readers. We talked about the prs-900 and they told me they didn't even get to see one during training, so good luck trying to find one before Xmas. I found it interesting that none of them seemed to know about mobileread.com or the rapidly expanding collection of ebooks we now have in the Las Vegas public library.

Doesn't seem to be, unfortunately. I've just checked with a Sony store here in the UK, and they don't have a sale on.

I got one for my 300 last weekend at the Sony store at a local outlet mall - priced at $39.99 and I had a 25% off coupon for one item in the store, so got it for $30 + tax. I'd been hesitant about them since I hadn't seen one out of the box, but they had one on the reader on display and it didn't add that much size to the reader. I like that it folds all the way back (my regular Sony cover doesn't) and the light works well. Just need to keep the grandkids from playing with it and running down the battery!

just posted on my intro. The sonystyle web site does have the 50% off til November 30, but I'm sorry about that if it's not the case overseas. I purchased mine for $27.99 + tax. Order total was $30 and some change. I can't wait to get it. It says it won't ship til the 30th.

I got mine full price as well ... I had my reader to myself until now ... with the light cover my 3 year old son ran off with it and played with the light, so it might end up being one of those products which should have been sold in packs of 10.

But, I'm very happy with it so far.
