Reading List

For those of you that don't know me that well (Not that I have many if any readers.). I have a habit of reading anything and everything I can get my hands on that I am interested in. It started when I was in late elementary school. I have a few suggestions of books for people to read who are interested in fictional works.

The Blue Adept Series by Piers Anthony
The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy Series by Douglas Adams
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
Seventh Son Series by Orson Scott Card

Those are the books that have be a joy to read over and over again for me.

Sony Reader

I've decided that I am tired of lugging around my laptop so that I can read when I am out and about. Laptops are a little bulky and I don't always have a surface to rest it on.

I went looking around on the internet for a decent priced PDA or the like that can read PDF files. I also wanted the added bonus of being able to transfer files to it. So after looking at the Kindle(Way over priced IMO); I decided on the Sony Reader Pocket Edition. It is small, light weight, reads multiple types of files including PDF, is transfer capable, and best of all it is almost a hundred dollars less than a Kindle.

The reviews both on the Sony site and off say that it is a great machine and though a few of the reviewers complained of the lack of features(The name says it all people! Its a Reader not a PDA), I decided it would be the best pick for me. So in about a month I'll hae enough money saved for it. I think I will get the navy colored one.
