I got my Sony Reader Touch edition about a month ago as a birthday gift, and I've been delighted with it so far. It's slim and light enough to be able to carry in a small bag without any difficulties, while storing hundreds of titles, and you can use memory cards to enhance the storage, although I haven't had to yet.

Battery life is impressive - I've been reading daily for the last two weeks, and the battery is still indicating that it has half its maximum time to go. The only thing is that you need to shut the device down fully to get the maximum battery life. I didn't realise this at first, and thought I was switching the device down when in fact I was only putting it into sleep mode, meaning that it didn't last as long before needing charged. It isn't immediately obvious that you need to hold the on/off switch for three seconds to shut the device down properly.

By registering on the Sony website, you get 100 free classics to download, which is a great way of starting and getting used to the device.

The touch facility is very handy, and you can double-click on words to bring up instant definitions from the Oxford dictionary. The e-ink is also good, meaning that you don't get the glare you would from reading from a computer screen. The software is easy to install and use. The only thing I would criticise is that the device came without a full user manual, which was easily enough found on the Sony site to download, but unless you look for and download this, you won't get full use of all the features.

A little bit more information is needed. How easy is it to use? whats it like when reading? How easy is it to read on it? All this should help you increase your ratings. Also reading others who have reviewed the same product will help in making it a more informative review. Good start none the less.
