I may have finally found the electronic device that will change my book acquiring behavior. For my May 1st Life Dinner gift Brad gave me a Sony Portable Reader, and then set it up for me this weekend (which may be the nicest part of the gift). He tried it first, which is always a good idea since I'm much less excited about new technologies than he is.
But this one has been great. The screen is easy on the eyes, and it feels like a book in the hand, and has an extremely easy user interface and easy downloading from the online bookstore. I read The Road over the weekend for my first book. The only strange thing is that I keep reaching to turn the page instead of pressing the Next Page > key. I'll learn a new behavior eventually..
