Hello everyone!
Christmas will soon be here and Santa wants to bring me an E-Reader for Christmas! I've narrowed my research down to these two, The Sony Touch Edition and the Amazon Kindle.
Sony PROS: expandable memory, lightest weight, full touch screen and access to library e-books, CONS: expensive, not wireless and can only download books by hooking it up to the computer.
Kindle PROS: less costly, longer battery life, wi-fi access to largest book selection store, CONS: does not have any of Sony's PROS features!
So, I've hit an indecisive crossroads! Do I choose the Sony because of it's quality despite that it might be a pain to access books or do I choose the Kindle for the ease of accessibility in purchasing e-books instantly, anytime, anywhere from Amazon.com?
So if anyone has any opinions because you currently own one of these E-readers or you switched from the one type to the other and like or dislike it better, I'd love your input!
Thanks so much!

Yeaaaah, my husband bought me a Sony Touch Edition E-Reader for Christmas! Now I just have to learn how to use it and then start downloading some books to read! Thank you Amy for your input and comments!

Amy B (amydawn96) I haven't seen the Nook or Kobo in person...just the Kindle and the Sony. I think all E-readers are just awesome. I didn't do a lot of research when I got my Kindle...my friend at school had one and I was jealous so I immediately had to have one (LOL). Love it! And I much prefer to read on the Kindle. I've been known to actually buy books for my Kindle that I already have (if they are a good price) just so I can read them on the Kindle. Just don't tell my husband! LOL

Yay, Tara, I'm glad you got one, too

And, thanks, Amy, my little sis took that pic at my Mom's house on Thanksgiving!

I got my e-reader all set up late last night and downloaded my first two books!

April (flipflop1117) I have a Nook and I love it. It's with me always and is so much easier than carrying multiple books around with me. I loved it for nursing my son as it can be used one-handed. I definitely read more now that I have it!

I am totally loving my Sony e-reader! I am very surprised by how easy it is to use, how much less space it takes up and it seems I am able to read more quickly! I am currently reading my second e-book on it!
