      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! :)

      Amongst all the eInk devices, I believe sony has created the only one conducive to the usage typical amongst college students. The touch screen is a wonderful luxury, the pocketable size is great, and the PDF viewing options drastically increase the usefulness of the product.
      Unfortunately, Sony is unwilling to develop software that allows these devices to shine. On a weekly basis, the reader freezes, necessitating carrying a paper clip to facilitate manually reseting the device. Additionally, the Reader software rarely works, and barely performs the most basic functions. Additionally, in two years they have failed to improve any of these problems. Sony appears to believe that new hardware will fix their bad software. The 350 has the same problems as the 600, and the reader library is virtually unchanged.

            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 received my Pocket Edition as a Christmas gift 2009. With the multiple formats, I can purchase ebooks, download books from the library and various other places. Other readers cannot download from the library. I use to go to the library and pickup 5-8 books at a time because I read fast. Now, they're all on one. It fits all of my bags and doesn't weigh it down. It lasts a long time without charging. It's less than $200, can't beat that! Gotta love it!

                    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.

                        My public library now loans ebooks, most in epub or pdf format with DRM (essentially encryption) by Adobe. Not all ereaders can read these books, notably Kindles cannot. Iphones, pads, pods, etc. can't either, although it may be possible that an application will provide that. (I see that apple is in a dispute to prevent the Sony IOS reader app from loading books except through iTunes, which would indicate that you won't be able to read borrowed library books on apple devices.) These readers can read epubs, but can't decrypt DRM protected files.

                          This was the best present I've ever received. I'm an avid reader and this is PERFECT for me. The holding capacity is great and the battery life is WONDERFUL. The two week that they state is no exaggeration. It shuts off by itself if you leave it by itself for too long so that it conserves battery. The only thing I wish it did have is a search tool but it does come with a categorization feature that is very helpful. I love this product. I am buying one for my best friend for her birthday and would recommend this to anyone who LOVES to read.

But, it has not been a problem at all. The only thing I would add to this awesome reader would be back lighting. I recommend the Sony Pocket Reader PRS-350 to everyone.
