  1. I’m waiting for a price war where the eBook reader costs less than my Quarterly book budget.

  2. I’m so torn. I am buying an Ereader next week and I can’t decide. I need to keep it to under 150.00 so there are suddenly more options then before. I bought my dad a Kindle for Christmas, and he likes it, but I like the look of the Kruz…but then I tried it out and it was clunky. The Sony seems similar to the kindle but it is the ONLY ereader at this point I believe where libraries will let you download for free so with this price drop…Sony’s looking surprisingly good, but I also want to go easily online. arggg…

      The weak spot of the Sony is the lack of wireless. Other than that, I think it kicks the Kindle’s ass in a lot of ways. Smaller, lighter, touchscreen. But Kindle has features Sony can’t provide: Full excerpts saved to the cloud, syncing across devices, and just a hell of a lot more books.
