For some time I have been eyeballing Sony’s e-reader in the local bookstore. I tried it a few times, but I didn’t like it - actually I had serious doubts about e-books in general because of the experience. Sony’s e-reader was not really easy to use with only one next-page button in a not-so-easy to access place. It also had a slow e-ink screen. It took a second to a second-and-a-half to show the next page. I didn’t like it and had serious doubts about buying any e-reader at all.
But, reading about all the “epic win”-stories of the Kindle by @johnnybusca I just had to give it a try - I bought one.
