E books

There seems to be a new Sony reader coming on to the market in conjunction with Waterstones. The snags seem to be that they are about £200 and you still have to buy the book at I suppose paperback prices. There will also be a limited range of books available, although I expect this would gradually increase. If it gets stolen, you could have lost your entire library! You couldn't pass the books on to others after reading and you may have to delete them if you run out of memory. The only benefit seems to be if you like to take lots of books on holiday
