... I have taken the plunge. I blame it on Ames and Kristie LOL.
What am I talking about? I'm talking about my latest purchase...
Yes, I caved and finally bought an e-Reader. Yay me! LOL. I say I blame it on Ames and Kristie... On Ames because she's been trying to convince me to buy one for a while... and on Kristie, because I said that when she'd get one, I would too. I didn't realize the day would come so soon!! LOL.
During the RT convention, Kristie attended the workshops about the e-Readers and said that she came out even more confused :P However, she did choose one. Her choice? The Kobo e-Reader which has just come out earlier this month.
I have to admit, I do have some reservations towards the Kobo... but then, I have reservations towards all e-Readers :P Anyway, I've been trying to gather information for a week now. At first, I was leaning toward the Sony e-Reader (PRS600SC)... but when you think about it, it all comes down to pricing. The Kobo is 149$ and the Sony e-Reader, 300$. For 150$ less, I don't mind the library system and perhaps the slowness of it and etc. My only concern really is long-term, since this is a first generation...
The main reason I've finally gotten an e-Reader is not to save space... but rather, get books that are OOP or not in print more easily. That's why I figured I could get simply an e-Reader... I personally don't think that I need all the bells and whistles. In any case, the decision is made, the e-Reader is bought :) Can't back up anymore!
So I'll probably be doing some posts about the Kobo e-Reader in the near future :) For now though, I haven't taken it out of the box yet... I'm going to be out of town tomorrow for work (booo!) and decided to wait for the week-end to start playing with it :) and Kristie, I've been thinking, I could do some video of how it works and etc... Perhaps it'll help you out :D
Here are some more pictures of the packaging... I find it funny all the stickers with the French covering the English... Lucky, the books and buttons are still in English!! Otherwise, it would be another trip back to the store...
By the way, I'm proud to announce that I've finally caught up to all the blogs and the comments! Yay me! I'm going to try to wrap up all the posts about RT this week-end and next week... Hope that I'll finally get back to reviews soon!! I miss reviewing and I've been reading quite a lot too! Plus, the books I've read before the trip... Hopefully, I'll be able to do all what I set out to do :D
In the meantime, have a nice week-end all! (Yes, it's early... but I won't have internet access till Saturday afternoon :( Booo.)
