So in a past post I have blogged about the books that I have, hardcover, trade, and mass paperback so today I am going to blog about my Sony eReader. When I purchased this ereader I had a hard time deciding if I wanted the Sony one or the Kindle. I think that the Kindle is probably the most popular but it is also the most expensive. Sony is at least $100 cheaper. For what I wanted to do with it and for the price I decided on the Sony. I am a little disappointed only that I can not get magazines or newspapers on the Sony and you can on the Kindle.
The size of the Sony is great. I have a lot of books that are like encyclopedias in size and I like to read before I go to sleep so the Sony is great for that. The Sony holds 160 books depending on size. It is also handy for traveling. It takes up hardly any room in a bag or purse as opposed to a hardcover book. And if you are like me I feel that I always have to have more than one book along, I can’t explain why but that is what I do. I also have a Palm Pilot that has a few books on it but it is very hard on the eyes to read it after awhile. The other problem I have when traveling is not only do I bring books along, of course we ALWAYS have to stop at a Barnes and Noble, Borders or Waldon books or if we are in a small town whatever local book store there might be. Then we always end up buying a book or two or ……??? You know what I mean. So instead of having to haul all those books around a eReader is the thing to have.
The Sony has 3 different font sizes and of course I have to have the BIG letters to see it, just kidding. Of course there is nothing like the feel and smell and some of the beautiful and intriguing covers that a lot of books have, I sure do not want to see actual books disappear. But if you are a person that has to wait in line or wait at an airport or bus terminal I would highly recommend an eReader. The choice of what kind depends on what you require but definitely worth the cost. Oh yes, the books that you can get. There is a huge selection at Sony eBook Store. Any genre, new releases and a lot of older books to choose from. You will most likely pay less than a hardcover, probably on an average the same as a trade size book. If you look hard enough you will find older release’s less than $5-10 and sometimes for free. That is a great deal.
So on my eReader I have the following books, these are all to-be-read:
