What I meant was there really is an easy way for one person to carry more than 300 books wherever he or she goes. That way would be to get a Sony Black Portable Reader System, and now is the perfect time to do just that.
Not only can you save $50 on the Sony Reader at Abt, but you’ll also receive 100 free eBooks with your purchase. To top it off, Sony has teamed up with Google to make 500,000 public domain titles available on the Reader for free. This makes the collection at Sony’s eBook Store the largest of any eBook reader.
What else does the Reader Digital Book offer? Besides weighing in at just 9 ounces, how about an internal memory that holds about 320 average size digital books, optional removable Memory Stick Duo media or SD memory cards to hold even more books, and a 6-inch touchscreen display with a built-in light. The screen lets you to zoom in and out and adjust the text among 5 different sizes, and you can also turn pages with a slide of your finger and utilize annotation, highlighting, and search applications.
All in all, the Sony Portable Reader System makes it much easier to do as the great humanitarian Krusty the Clown commands: “Give a hoot, read a book.” —by Graham W.
