Something NEW at my house...

I knew I wanted some sort of e-reader, but I've been trying to figure out which one.  I've done some research, and I went to look at the various ones out there.  I ended up buying this one - a Literati by Sharper Image.  The price is definitely right - $49 at Best Buy.  That's a smoking deal. 
I downloaded 5 free books - to check it out.  It is longer than a Kindle, weighs the same and it comes with a carrying case.  How could I go wrong?  So I am currently trying it and I am reading "The Secret Agent" by Joseph Conrad written in 1906, I think.  I am enjoying it.  It is very easy to read in the dark because it is back lit.  It's easy to hold.  I am told the battery life is about 7 hours, which is not very long, but I think for $49, it will work just fine.
Merry Christmas to me!

Merry Christmas to you is right!!! You are going to LOVE digital reading!!! I have a Kindle and I LOVE it. I'm curious, where do you purchase your books... or should I say, where did you download your freebies from? ;)

I have to buy/download my books from kobobooks.com. I know the libraries have free books, but I have been told they are not compatible with the Kindle or the Nook. Aren't you restricted to Amazon.com?
