    I was thinking of getting one of those Amazon Kindles hxxp://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_kinh?url=search-alias%3Delectronics&field-keywords=ebook+reader&x=0&y=0 or the Sony PRS-505. Does anyone here use these Digital Book Readers, or recommend any particular model?

    I have the Sony Reader PRS-505.

    What do you want to use it to read mainly?

    Amazon Kindle DOESN'T support .pdf files well, so if you read alot
    of IM documents like I do, Kindle is a no-no.

    Well I've read many 100 page ebooks on my LCD computer screen :)

    What's your main purpose for wanting one?

    I love my PRS; just not using it as much as I'd like to make it really
    worthwhile, since I seem to always be reading on my laptop.

    But when I'm travelling, I do listen to music and read ebooks/reports
    from there.

    I'm not the kind to BUY novels online, so I mainly use it for IM education
    purposes.

    It ain't all that cheap either, so your main purpose in buying really does
    matter alot.

    I tend to read bits and pieces from all over. I do miss reading off of paper though.

    You've gotta read a whole darn lot before the money you spend
    on your reader equals the money you spend on paper.

    But go ahead and get one if you can afford it.

    I think you'll love it.
