|I have the red one. Sexy.|
This is not a book. I figured it would be a useful review though... My mom got a Sony eReader for Christmas last year, and the minute I saw it, I was intensely jealous. It was a book... but it was also a gadget that had shiny buttons. I wanted one!
Cut to 3 months later when my mom finally hands the thing over, with only 1 book bought and read through. It was the beginning of a beautiful relationship.
I have the touch version of the eReader, including a little stylus with which to poke and draw notes. For a fidget-er like me it's pretty much heaven. The screen is not as reactive when i am trying to use a gesture to make a page turn, but when I accidentally swipe a finger across, I lose my page. It's a little irksome after a while. The buttons are a little small and feel a bit like if I push them enough I may weaken and possibly lose them. Barring this, it's a very handy item. I have dropped it a couple times, to no damage to the screen, and although it's metal surface shows a little scratching and wear, it's still in fairly good shape.
Although fond of the little bugger, it is still my mom's property, and I feel like if I break it, I buy it. Hence why last week I bought my own gadget, and soon there will be a blog post for it!
Time to pass the thing onto my sister...
