It was my husband, a huge fan of both literature and technology that first made me aware of the e-book and in particular of the Sony Reader. Unlike me, he tends to think hard about his purchases in advance and so there were many conversations (well not really conversations as that would assume my participation) around the virtues of this product before he actually decided to take the plunge and get one. I am by no means a prolific reader and my literary tastes are not as high brow as his, but I do appreciate books. I like to see books lined up on a shelf and I am fascinated by old books in museums, so a book reader just seemed, well wrong, to ... Read the complete review

When I first heard about the concept of an eBook reader I was quite excited. I like to read a lot and would find it difficult to carry around all the books I want with me; they would be far too heavy. So, I thought it would be a wise idea to invest in one and found that the Sony PRS-505 was the most affordable one for me. I bought mine from Play.com for £179.99, quite a bit less than what it retails for in other places. I was happy to find that it arrived in only a few days, much earlier than I expected. Getting started was a very simple process. All I had to do was hook up the eBook reader to the USB port on my computer, install the drivers and I ... Read the complete review

I absolutely love my ebook and carry it everywhere with me. I have been using it since late December 2008 and since getting it I have only read 4 real books - only because they were not available in ebook format. It came with 100 free classics which is nice because most of my favourite Jane Austen books were on there. It also gives me something to fall back on when I am short of money to buy an ebook. I am a readaholic and will often read a couple of books at a time and this is perfect for me as I can carry around all the books I may want to read in one small footprint, that is smaller than most books in width although perhaps a little larger in length. ...

Right. You want the convenience of taking a substantial library on holiday but can't afford the excess baggage allowance. Solution: Cram an extensive library onto the eReader and away. Let's be realistic though and say you could use this product anywhere. The Sony is a compact and lightweight e-book reader of the highest quality. The metal casing is both stylish and tasteful. The technical bit: Basically, the Sony displays books in an electronic format, like a MS Word document for example. The display is an 8 level grayscale dubbed by Sony as e-ink. It can store approxiamtely 160 books on the internal storage and catalogues these books orderly. ... Read the complete review

**** Sony E Reader **** I really enjoy reading but somehow my suitcase always ends up really heavy so when i saw that my local Waterstones had some in stock i decided to purchase one.At 199 quid its not cheap but i felt i could easily spend that on buying the books alone. **What is it?** Basically it is an electronic device that you can store books on.The memory size you get with it holds up to 160 books but there is also slots for you to add extra memory if needed,not that you would need it. **Pros** One of the best things about this is that you do not have to carry loads of books around with you. Books are cheaper on the ... Read the complete review
