I was doing a book signing Saturday and got to see and touch the Sony Ebook Reader for the first time! I was sooooo hooked when I discovered that you get 100 free books when you purchase one. Of course, I'm going to start saving hard to get me this Sangria Red model by Christmas! It is such a super cool gadget which also holds video and digital photos. The only problem is that the screen flashes in and out when you flip the virtual page. It doesn't have the function to choose a different style of flipping. Over all, it's easy to use, you can plug it right into the computer or laptop with a USB cable and you can download from any download site (per the sales girl). The best thing about it is that it's lightweight and gives you an option to stash more books on a jumpdrive or memory card. You can also read PDF and Word documents and it allows for 7500 pages of reading which one of their site commercials says is equivalent to reading "War & Peace" three times. Not that I could get through it the first time around, but you get the picture! I am so stoked about it. Maybe when I get it they will have a new upgraded version.
