Official Meditation Thread (only for Sony Reader Enthusiasts)

So the release of the Sony Reader that will be in October... is getting us more and more nervous.

So here it is, our very own meditation thread. You feel you have a weak moment? Than this is the place to talk to your friends and let them help you to be strong again. Have faith in Sony....blah blah blah..


So I will start: "Hello my name is diabloNL and I'm nervous"

Yeesssssss! I feel a profound sense of peace descending upon me in zen-Like beauty!

Wait ... no ... not really.

This waiting is making me nuts. Okay, more nuts.

Thanks, DiabloNL.

I don't know if anyone else has this problem.

I've got a whole ton of ebooks I've been saving up. Whenever I think about re-reading an old favorite, or something similar, I think "Well, it's so much trouble to check it out from the library when I've got the ebook, and it's such a pain to read on the screen... I'll just read it when I get my reader."

Of course, I started this whole thing about a year ago, when I was starting to get excited about the Hanlin offerings. So I've got quite a backlog now. In fact, I think my overall reading has gone *down* :-(

And then when I do read, I feel guilty. I saw "Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town" on the library shelf the other day, and I grabbed it and read it. Then I thought to myself, "Wait! This is a freely-available ebook! I should have read something I can't get in ebook format!"

... At least now I have a place to confess these things, and be at peace. Ommmmm. ;-)

Public service announcement: be sure to say it the right way round -- it's "om" -- you don't want to say it backwards.

That would be awfull! (but still stress relieving, somehow)

Ok, so I finally decide on a device after A LOT of research, and I decide on the Sony. Then I get antsy about when it will be released. I keep getting excited about the dates they tell us, just to have them yank it away. I will not believe it until I get one in my hand, then I will rejoice.
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!

Every new working e-reader, which is buyable for real (not just a prototype) is a good news. So I say: oooooohhhhhhmmm, too.

I could not agree more, yokos. Thanks for supporting us in our time of trial.

I bet this reader will be announced in October, and it'll be coming to stores in the middle of November. If we haven't heard about it now, than it's likely to be so.
This is what I think anyways.

At this point, I think we'll just have to see what we see.

(but the wait is making me nuts)
