Since we now own a Sony e-reader, a Kindle, and a nook, I’m working on a comparison post on all of them.

In the meantime, you can visit Calibre’s site at: and use it to convert files to write to the devices. (Yes, that means even to your Kindle.) It’s free software, and allows you to do more than convert files.

E-book conversions.

    Tragically, I do NOT own an e-reader. I think it’s because I spend so much time staring at computer screens for work. The idea of relaxing by staring at another one just DOES NOT appeal.

    I have a Sony, but the Nook looks very tempting! Will be looking forward to your evaluation of all three =)

    Kate – Actually, try one out locally. Even Target and Wal-Mart carry the Sony readers now. The e-ink technology is not like looking at a normal computer screen, it’s like reading text on paper. Plus you can usually resize the text for ease of reading.

    Melanie – There’s good and bad points on all three, and I’m still investigating. I do like how on the Kindle and nook you can just drag and drop files via USB (if they’re the right format, of course) without having to open a third-party interface. That’s just totally easy and suh-weet! My Sony (which is an older model, the PR-505, so I don’t know if the newer ones are different or not) doesn’t have that feature.
