I haven't gotten an e-reader yet. I'm still mulling it over. The first "e-book" I read was the first Allan Quartermain book series. I had seen the two movies, King Soloman's mines(both), and Allan Quartmain and the lost city of gold. A number of years ago I saw a movie called "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" in it was Allan Quartermain. I did a little research and found out that the books, being printed starting in 1885 were in public domain.

The first book I purchased was A Meeting at Corvallis.

I had just gotten my 505 and couldn't find the MMPB of Corvallis anywhere. I logged on to Sony's store and grabbed it up in LRF format. I was amazed when I was reading it within ten minutes.

Amazed at the ease of use, I purchased three more books to fill my reader.


And now five readers later, the digital shelf has grown exponentially out of control.

My first ebook reading experience was couple of chapters of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer on my Compaq iPaq PDA. I can't remember if I got it from somewhere, but I think it came with it.

I didn't read another ebook until I bought my PRS-505, and the first book I read on that was Wuthering Heights, the freebie that come with it.

My first ebook was The Call of the Wild by Jack London. I downloaded it to make sure I would be able to from Japan at all. The first ones I purchased were In Pale Battalions by Robert Goddard and The Stand.

The Seventh Sword trilogy (starting with The Reluctant Swordsman) by Dave Duncan. I had been unable to find the books in print when I finally did find them in eBook format.
