Sony Reader For $69.95

Amazon’s got a Sony Reader on sale for $70. It’s a refurb, but I’ve had this exact model for more than a year now, and it also was a refurb. It’s one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. I get my books at Kobo books and use the free Calibre ebook manager to get the books onto the device. One advantage this has over the Kindle and Barnes and Noble editions: I can use it to borrow ebooks books from my local library and to download free classics from Project Gutenberg.

  1. For Project Gutenberg, at least the Nooks can use those too.  It is just ePub format and the Nooks will read that or PDF or HTML (but ePub is the best format).

    I don’t know the particulars of the Libary borrowing, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the Nook didn’t handle that if there was digital rights involved from a software side.

    I have the Nook Color, which I like, but I sort of wish I had spent another $250 and got an iPad.  I will probably be looking hard at an iPad 2 later this year.
