Thumbs up Newbie Introduction and Question

I have just gotten the Sony Reader, and I am really enjoying it. I think this will be the iPod of books. I have already read a couple books on it, and really enjoyed the experience. I am a true computer geek but have always preferred reading on paper. This is the first time I have been convinced to move my reading to an electronic device of any kind.

I bought mine at Border, and just as a heads up for all you Borders Rewards members; you can use many of your coupons to buy a Sony Reader! I got 10% off mine.

I think the only think really in the way of the Sony Reader taking off is the price, but I also know that once production takes off and is meeting demand that the price will lower. I also think that Sony needs to make some effort to education the public on why e-ink and backlight don't mix.

Anyway, I have been working on formatting some of my favorite books onto the reader and have had a lot of good help from this forum so far (Thanks!). The only think I can't find out how to do is change the author name on the PDF files I make from OpenOffice. I tried changing my user information at the time of saving the file, but it didn't help. Does anyone have any pointers?

I'm not sure about OpenOffice, but from MS Word you would select File, Properties and look at the Title and Author fields. Have a gander at that.
