    What can you tell me about e-book readers?

    I was considering an ebook reader, maybe a Sony. The books seem to be a bit expensive though. Can anyone tell me what they think about their readers if they have one and is there a place to get books at a good price?

    I'm just wondering also about managing the books. Can books be swapped, or are they er around as NZB's or torrents unlocked and reader to install or are they all DRM locked . Just looking for general info about how these things work and whether i can swap or sell books after reading so as to get the best value and keep costs down.

    That's girlfriends for you - a mystery to most of us! ;-)

    Books are expensive, but if you find free online books you can convert them from any format into ePub. I use a free program called Calibre and have created over 200 books for myself.

    I use my reader every day - one of the best buys I have made. I went for the PRS-300.
    If you buy books I don't think you can swap them with other people.

    Thanks for the info those that replied. Thought there would be more contributions to this thread, obviously mostly an illiterate lot
