Cool Just busted through the $50 Credit

Well, I have already spent the $50 and more at the Connect store, which is good for Sony. I'm actually pretty pleased with the content that the store is getting -- I just picked up the new Colin Powell biography for less than Amazon.

Granted, we may never see all of the old titles available online -- at least for a while. I am happy that they seem to be keeping up with the new releases. The weekly email is also nice.

Me too! I find the store to be very easy to utilize. It also offers decent savings over Amazon. Plus, I love the convenience of getting the book immediately! (I live overseas and almost always have to wait a week for books I order. This is wonderfuly to feed my instant gratification!)

...now if they could include cheaper (sub-$10) in the weekly emails

I'm allergic to paying more then paperback prices for an e-book!

I've blown the 50 bucks and spent an additional 30-40 on top of that. While the store software sucks, I've found the formatting of the content to be pretty good.

THREE DAYS to blow through $50?

I'd love to know how you guys did that? Maybe I'm just a slow reader...

They didn't say they'd read all the books in three days, just that they'd bought them.

Talking Not me

Hahahaha... Looks like these guys might have the same disease I do.
Thats why I dont have(want) a credit card...!!

When I was a student I used to troll bookstores and buy whatever caught my eye. It was then I could read what I could afford. Then I discovered used bookstores (my hometown -Pasadena- was famous for them) and I would buy from desire to read rather than readability. Books I had not read started piling up (became quite a collection).
Now I dont buy but what I cannot read -- and download for free. That is why I love my reader.
My manuals and I!!!!!!!!!!!!!


(obviously I dont have friends either cause thats way too much information )
