What UP? LA, CA, USA

LA, CA, USA here.

What to say, but... New Sony PRS-600 arriving today, a gift from a very generous brother who had the 550 and upgraded himself to the 600 as well.

I haven't got the foggiest idea what to do with it yet. Although I played with his 550 a lot, and another friend's Kindle, I never loaded anything. SOOOOOOOOOO all this talk about crashes and problematic Calibre/Sony issues has me once again, busy.

I told my brother he should just keep it in shape for me, but he said: "NO!"

So, I'm going to start using the site and get to work.

Hi afterry and welcome to MobileRead. Lots of friendly advice here if you have problems with your new toy. I've had a 505 for over two years and really like it.

HI and welcome from a very happy Sony 600 owner!

What a nice brother indeed.

Haven't gotten involved with Calibre or anything else except for downloading books from Sony and this site. I have too much reading to do already to spend time converting things!

I have the Sony software on my Mac and have had 'zero' problems so far. (since late Sept. '09)

Enjoy!

Welcome to MR, afterry, and what a very nice brother you have. Since your brother has already had experience with the Sony 505, he will be a great help to you for getting started (even though he says he won't... siblings are like that ).

Below are a few links that may be of interest to you as you learn.

You can explore using Calibre and Kovid, the creator, frequents the forums here. We even have a dedicated Calibre forum.

Did you know that MR has free ebooks? They have been beautifully handcrafted by some very dedicated MR members.

ePub format and Sony BBeB / lrf format

Free ebook sites ...feedbooks.com and manybooks.net

Free and for purchase ebooks

smashwords.com
baen.com
Plus Baen has a great free library

We have a Sony Reader Troubleshooting Guide (in the MR Wiki) that is being put together by members (just in case you have some of those problems ) also in the MR Wiki is information on your Sony 600.

There is also a How to download ebooks from the MobileRead Library thread that was just started.

Have fun exploring the forums and ask if you have any questions.

Thanks to everyone that replied. It's actually nice to introduce one's self. I didn't know that.

I'll see you guys around the Forums.
