I had a Sony Reader that was given to me several years ago. I loved it. Then they did an update and the thing never worked again. I sent it in, they sent it back, not working. I went through step after step trying to make it work, never did. I've looked at the Kindles, but not sure if I want to go that route again. I've looked at the I Pads and am undecided on that also. I still read paper books and love them. Just finished John Grishams, The Confession, very good book.
