Question Grey/low-contrast Reader screen?

Hello, all;

I recently bought a Sony Reader to replace my old Gemstar GEB2150. I mainly had to go from online reviews and documentation as to the Reader's features since no one locally sells it and I never had the chance to see a physical unit before I bought it. I received the Reader yesterday and am in the main very happy with it, but one thing bothers me. Even in very good, strong light my Reader's background is a darkish grey, never white, and it does not have good contrast with the black text. All of the photos I've seen of the Reader's screen made it look like the background was, if not a bright white, at least clearly white, rather than grey. Can other folks tell me what their Reader screens look like? I don't know if mine is normal or if there's something wrong with the unit.
