I bought an eReader!!!

At long last, I finally bought an eReader. It's a Sony Reader PRS-650. It's black and has a 6" screen. I've had it for just over a week and didn't say anything until now because it was a bit of a shock that I even got one. Stores in the city have been sold out for awhile. One store told us to check back in the month, but on a whim I checked back in 4 days and sure enough they had 1 in stock. Not 10, not 5. Just 1. I couldn't believe it.

I really wanted to check it out first, too. I mean what if I didn't like it and had to return it. Like that was going to happen. As it turns out I love it!!!!!

Anyway, I already have three review books on it. All cozy mysteries from Sandra Balzo. Yippee! I've already read the first one Uncommon Grounds and loved it. Check back later this week for my review.

After I've read another book or two, I'll post my review of the Sony Reader. I want to make sure I've used all of the features before I tell you what I think.

For now, here are some photos:

Sony Reader

Case #1 - I bought this case first. I thought it would be good for carrying the reader in my purse. It has a zipper to keep other items away from it. That way it can't get banged up or scratched.

Case #2 - I liked the first case I bought, but I wasn't getting that real book experience. I bought this case so I could hold the reader like a book. It worked. As an added bonus, this case fits inside the first one. It's pretty snug and I wouldn't want to store it in there for long periods of time, but it's going to be perfect for travelling.

I just couldn't hold it in any longer. I love my new eReader!


  1. I've started checking out the readers as well. I'll like to use my airmiles points to buy one, but it's going to be tricky since airmiles doesn't offer one as a 'reward'.

  2. Congrats, you're going to love it. You'll quickly find out that an eReader doesn't compete with paper books but is simply another way for authors to deliver a product.

  3. Congratulations! It is fun to be so excited about something book-related! Enjoy playing around with it.

  4. Congrats on your e-reader! You will enjoy it so much! I said I never wanted one but received one for Xmas and I love it. I have a cover that is like a book cover also and it does give me that "book" feel. Have fun with your new toy!

  5. Congrats! I'm so excited for you. I never thought I'd have an eReader either but now I couldn't live without it.

  6. Very nice! Congrats!

    I've still not got one and I don't miss it, but I'm sure when I do finally get one I will love it too.

    Have fun with your beautiful e-reader.

  7. Thanks everyone. So far I've resisted the urge to fill it up with books, but I'm sure that I'm going to give in sooner or later.


Thanks so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I've been getting lots of spam comments, so I'm turning on word verification to help keep spammers away. I know it's a pain; I don't like it either. Hopefully, in time I'll be able to turn it off again. Thank you!
