Help with decision please :-)

Hi all!

I am in the position that many of you guys (probably all) have been in.

I have been wanting to buy an ereader a few months now but I cant work out what is best for me as soon as I think I have picked one I read really bad reviews about it (you get that with everything though)

All I want this little machine for is reading a novel, I don't need any other features.

I do a lot of reading in the dark so would like something that would cope with a book light on it.

I am not that computer savvy and the thought of converting things on the computer and then uploading to the ereader in not something that excites me but I could learn if needed.

I like the Sony 300 and also the 600 but based on what I have said I am wondering what you experienced efolk would recommend for me?

TY

The 300 would probably be best for you. It's cheap and is basic. I have a 505, which is slightly larger, and I use a Mighty Bright Flex LED light that works great. The software works like iTunes, if you are familiar with that.

If you don't need any extra features, the sony prs-300 is probably your best option.
