**** Sony E Reader ****
I really enjoy reading but somehow my suitcase always ends up really heavy so when i saw that my local Waterstones had some in stock i decided to purchase one.At 199 quid its not cheap but i felt i could easily spend that on buying the books alone.
**What is it?** Basically it is an electronic device that you can store books on.The memory size you get with it holds up to 160 books but there is also slots for you to add extra memory if needed,not that you would need it.
**Pros** One of the best things about this is that you do not have to carry loads of books around with you. Books are cheaper on the ereader than they are to buy normally and when you buy the ereader from Waterstones it comes with 100 classic books so if you are like me and would read these anyway the ereader pays for itself. It can also hold/play music which is good in a way because it means you have to carry one less device about with you. Pictures can also be stored on this but i dont really like this feature .
**cons** Like i said above pictures can be stored but they are not in colour. There are not as many books out for the ereader and they can be harder to find.When you buy an ebook from waterstones the search engine is not that good. Audio books cannot be played. The screen sometimes flickers when you turn the page and there is not a light on it so you cant read books in the dark.I bought a light up bookmark which solved this problem but it was still annoying.
Overall I think that this device is okay but i have a feeling that devices such as amazons kindle are going to be much better so i would advise waiting for one of these.
