            I love my reader!!!! I was able to get some books from the library and that has worked great!!! Finding a cover was difficult because of the size. I wish there were more varieties of covers available. I travel alot, so I would like to be able to access the Ereader bookstore overseas. I was able to in June when I bought the ereader.... I hope that changes in the future.

              I love my Sony reader. Especially the multiple formats that can be used. Some other readers don't offer the same options. I would buy another for my wife, who keeps taking mine, but I think the prices are a little higher than they should be as compared to similar products from other companies. I hoping to find one on sale at which time I would buy a pink one for my wife.

                Comments about Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS350SC Digital Text Reader:

                LOVE this as a replacement for my Franklin eBookman 911. Screen is a little bigger but still able to fit in my purse or jacket pocket. Touch navigation is almost intuitive and user guide VERY easy to follow. Multiple formats supported so I don't lose my exsisting library. Much of it was HTML, which easily converts to a text doc (which is supported). Can do the same with MS Word docs. Multiple options for reading PDF, so you can pick the best way to change the image depending on the type of PDF (graphics vs. text heavy). LOVE THIS for PDFs.
                Just wish some type of protective case came in the box. Even a slip cover would have been nice. Don't like feeling like I HAVE to buy the separate case immediately at $26 - $35 just to have ANY type of protection for it.

                  Comments about Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS350SC Digital Text Reader:

                  I purchased a prs300 for my wife a year ago because she gets headaches when she reads. She increases the font size so she doesn't get headaches anymore. I researched the Sony brand readers because I do A LOT of reading and 75% of it is bible study. All my hard copy bibles have highlights and notes in them. I researched the Nook and Kindle and wasn't totally happy with either, then I discovered the new Readers from Sony had a touch screen! I compared back and forth a couple months until I decided the Reader prs-650 was for me. I went to Borders to get my hands on one. When i tried out the prs-350 however I loved it. I decided I didn't need expansion or mp3 since my phone does that very well. So I purchased the prs-350sc. I love the e-ink pearl display, and how easy it is to highlight bible verses, underline or circle words, write little notes and bookmark the page and write notes with the on-screen keyboard for that page. Other small things it does that advertising doesn't really tell you about... you can type in text notes, like i put in shopping lists. It has a doodle pad, I have fun killing time doodling with it once in awhile. You can load your own pics and use them as a "screensaver." The prs-350 fits right in my shirt pocket, anything bigger would not fit. If you are thinking about using any reader for bible study, I suggest the Max Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible. Most other bible have book and chapter navigation (some only have book navigation). The Max Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible has book, chapter and VERSE navigation. So when you go to church armed with your Sony Reader and the pastor tells you to go to John 3:16, you hit the Table of Contents, hit New Testament, hit John, hit chapter 3.... the you hit verse 16 and wala! Now you are free to highlight key passages, add a bookmark, type in notes and circle words to your hearts desire!! I hope you have found this review helpful as I seen no reviews on using readers for study. Thank you for reading and God bless you! :)

                    What can I say...this is pretty close to perfect. I owned the PRS-300 for a year and loved it, but the moment I saw this one on display in a store I just had to have it.

                      I replaced my 300 with this newer model and still think Sony has the best ereader available. I also own a Nook, which I use for audiobooks, but much prefer to read on the Sony. The Sony is much easier to use - the touch, getting where you want to be, more adjustments, just all around this reader is fantastic! Also, checking out library books is easier and a great compliment to purchasing books. Thanks Sony, you're getting it right!

                          I've had the PRS-900 for quite awhile now and I really love it but this new touch screen is amazing. I bought the PRS-350 to give as a gift and after having a bit of hands-on with the new screen, I really want one! It weighs almost nothing and fits in a purse pocket very nicely and, oh yeah, did I say "I want one?"

                            After using both of the "big two" readers (the Nook and Kindle 2 & 3), I finally found my perfect eReader. I have a very long commute and never liked taking books along because of the excess weight. This eReader is incredibly lightweight, and I can take it anywhere. The software is extremely easily to use with my MacBook Pro. I am now reading more books than ever, as I have found they are easy to download and the screen resolution enjoyable. I find reading on this device is soothing. I love the touchscreen and adding books to collections is quite simple. I easily added my own photos as screen images. I like using the stylus for jotting notes. This device is so easy to use. I never had to look in the manual. I love using the dictionary and the search function. I also really like the selection of text sizes. I found the screen on both the Nook & Kindle dim compared to my Sony PRS-350, and archaic. The supposed touchscreen on the Nook is a joke and the keyboard of the Kindle 3 is almost prehistoric. I returned both the Kindle 3 and Nook after one week's use. It's too bad that suppliers of skins and covers do not seem to be getting behind Sony eReaders, but I guess they're too busy salivating over the Kindle 3. However, I fail to understand the hype surrounding the Kindle. I know people have been expressing their dislike of no Wi-Fi on the Sony PRS-350, but I had it on both the Nook and Kindle 3 and do not miss it. I have not been in a situation where I urgently need to download a book. Also, surfing the web on those readers was a joke-because the resolution and speed were terrible. When I want the web, I use either my laptop or my iPhone. My only surprise was that Sony did not include an adapter with the eReader, so I went ahead and purchased one anyway. I do wish a wider selection of magazines were offered because I would certainly be tempted to purchase subscriptions to read on this eReader. Don't let the price stop you--I find that this device does not have the cheap feel of the Kindle 3, or the bulkiness of the Nook. My only disappointment is that more people have not discovered the wonder of this eReader. It is a great device!
