Hello

Hi all,

I am a keen Science Fiction reader as well as some Fantasy. I am a software engineer by trade though I now run a digital photography lab with another guy (I get to do all the software!). I do not currently own an eBook reader, I do almost all my reading on my laptop and I plan to ge a reader sometime soon. Having done a fair bit of research into it and lurking around here I will probably get a Sony or Kindle.

Mike.

Thanks again for the welcome folks.

Valmore: I am also considering the Nook. The problem with the Kindle is that library loans are not an option on it.
