Hello mobile readers! I discovered this site when I read about the Sony Reader on Gizmodo (I think) last January and immediately told my husband, "I've discovered my next gadget!" At that time I thought it would come out just in time for Mother's Day, but instead it came out just in time for my birthday. Anyway, I Googled the Reader to find out more information and found MobileRead. I've been lurking ever since, reading about the Iliad and the Reader. None of the misgivings voiced about Sony, DRM, content, etc. discouraged me from buying a Reader and mine arrived yesterday! So far I love it and I've just bought my first books from Connect. Now I'm off to look through the fora for answers to my questions. If I don't find them I'll be posting.

Welcome "out of the dark," Turtle Woman! There's lots of good info here, though some of it does need digging out.

Hi, Turtle Woman. The Reader came out in time for my birthday, too. I ordered it on line ---- don't think it's out physically in stores yet.

I thought it would be buggier --- they were clearly racing to make the Christmas market, though I wonder if they have, really. But no problems at all so far and I've bought a lot of books from Connect and am pleased with their offerings and the pricing. (Waaaaaaaaay too pleased.........32 books on the Reader so far, only a few free ones.)

I saw a review in the Wall Street Journal of the Reader and looked it up. I've resisted ALL electronic readers so far but it must have been time for a platform shift in my life (okay, I'm running out of space in the six new barrister bookcases we put together) because I was riveted all afternoon and bought it on the spot. They said it wouldn't come for a MONTH, but it was only two weeks.

I am very well pleased with it. It's a security device --- all those books! Now I don't have to carry several around "just in case."
