"Fits in jean, free books from library, cost me only 129"5.0 starson by sykesdavid
Pros: Small and compact. Excellent battery life. Easy sync with Mac. Comfortable to read for long periods, free books from library with EPub.
Cons: Smaller selection of books to buy. Good for new releases but poor for older books or books from other countries i.e England. Would like some sort of side light for reading at night and more case options would be nice.
Summary: After extensive research and borrowing of readers from friends this was by far my first choice. Its small size means it can fit in a suit jacket or jean pocket. Its touch screen is quick and responsive. After having an Iphone for 3 years I hate not being able to use my fingers to navigate a screen. Its ability to use free library EPub- I only read books once so why buy when you can borrow. I wasn't concerned about the lack of wifi or 3g as I can easily wait to get home to buy a book if I really want to. The only real downside was the high cost. My final objection was recently removed when buy.com offered a new Sony PRS-350sc for only $129 including free shipping.!!!!!!! I've had the reader for a little over a week now and love love love it. I carry it everywhere and can dip into a book whenever I want. If I want to read a new release I just go onto my library website and either download the book I want for free for a week or so or if its out, place a hold and they email when it's available. Just like borrowing paper versions of the book except I don't have to drive to the library to get it and return it. I just download the EPub, load it onto my reader and it automatically expires at the end of the borrowing period. Oh so civilized. Can't recommend this enough.
