“If you read dozens of paperback novels each month, as...”

Written on: 07/02/2010 by MikeyB123 (16 reviews written)

If you read dozens of paperback novels each month, as my wife does then this could be just the gadget for you. At first I was sceptical about my technophobe wife using something like this but she very quickly settled in to using it. It gives the convenience of carrying hundreds of books around in your "pocket". The PRS-300 is the pocket version but is a little too big to fit a normal pocket but does fit a handbag easily. It is very intuitive to use. One drawback is the method by which the books are catalogued on the reader itself. It does not file books by authors surname. I would also recommend prospective purchasers to download and use the freeware version of Cardinal. It offers much more functionality and is more stable than the reader library that comes with the reader. A major drawback with the reader is the need for access to a computer each time you want to add or remove a book, or to charge its battery. My son has a PSP and we have used the charger from that sucessfully. A wise puchase, although an expensive one, was the light and cover for the reader. The screen is black and white and is not like a normal computer screen that you can read in the dark, you need illumination to read it.
