My name is Carol and I just joined Mobileread today.
For Christmas my husband gave me the Sony Daily Edition. I love it.
I am a librarian in southerastern North Carolina. I swore that I would NEVER use a reader because there is nothing like holding a book in your hands. Then one day I saw a Sony reader in a store and told him I think I could use one of these. Well he took my at my word. I got it the day after Christmas and started using it immediately and have decided that I'll probably never buy a "real" book again.

Hi Carol, welcome to MR!
It's nice to have another North Carolinian here--there are several of us around. I agree with you--I much prefer reading from my Kindle than from a "real" book!
By the way, your husband must be a great guy!

As a librarian, maybe you can become an advocate for more lending libraries being part of the Overdrive system, which allows library member to "check out" ebooks. I use it in my city for both ebooks and audio books.

Welcome to MR, I'm glad you're enjoying your new reader. When I first got mine my husband said "you'll get tired of it soon." Boy, was he ever wrong, best purchase I've ever made.
