So, I took the plunge today and bought my first e-book reader. You may have noticed the title of this post. . . yes that's what I got.
The software has already become corrupt once.
Not an auspicious beginning. I'm not sure how that happened. Perhaps there is some trick to ejecting the device that they didn't mention in the pamphlet type 'manual' that it came with.
Other than that it works well. Reading on the e-ink is much nicer than the LCD on the iPod I borrowed from my sister.
I'm busy loading it up with public domain books.
