I just got a "new" toy. I love it!!! It's a Sony PRS-505, a portable reading system. I saw the Oprah when she gave everyone in the audience a Kindle and I've been wanting one ever since! How many of you have one of the Portable Reading Systems? They're fabulous. Right now I have over 30 books in my hand and I can download as many as I want. How cool is that? I have hundreds of books at my house and now I have 27K on my hard drive.

The Sony is better than the Kindle. Mainly, it is because with the Kindle you can only download from Amazon, which costs. With the Sony, you can download .pdf and .doc items. There are thousands of books that don't cost a thing in pdf format. Of course, you still will have to pay if you want the latest best sellers but I'm finding thousands of books that I've never read so I can wait on best sellers. It's a little like going to a theater for a movie or waiting for it to be on TV.

I see, you love reading so much. I envy you because you still had the time to read. Me, I'm pretty much busy. I'm yearning for those old times that i can hold and read a book whole day with out worries.

Of course I am as busy as everybody else. But I am a secondary English teacher and as such I am almost "required" to read as part of my job. I love it.
