Hi from Hong Kong

Hi everyone,

I'm an Aussie but currently on a long backpacking trip through Asia (16 months and counting). I'm an avid reader but boy do they take up room in my backpack, not to mention the weight! I can't believe I haven't jumped on this bandwagon sooner. There doesn't seem to be a large selection of e-readers here in Hong Kong, so I've gone with the Hanvon N520, so far so good. As long as it lasts me til I get home (early next year) I'll be happy.

Cheers

G'Day Dr G and welcome to MobileRead. I go off on business travel occasionally and really appreciate my eReader's portability and being able to borrow eBooks from my local library when I'm on the road

Sounds like you're having good fun, Garfield. Even more if you can lose twenty pounds of excess baggage. A reader will help make the tour for you. Best wishes and happy travelling. Neil
