This is awesome!

by Nancy on 5/13/2010

I just received my Sony reader and am amazed at how easy it was to get up and running. I have already checked an ebook out of my public library's site and downloaded a free ebook that I found on the Reader's Store website. You might want to be sure your library participates in an ebook website by going to their website and doing a search. It is the size of a paperback book and I love the feature for changing the font size! I am a huge reader and have so many books in my home and now I can store 350 without adding another shelf! Get this product - you will love it. Shipping was free and it arrived very quickly. I am very happy with my new gadget! Read More
