Father’s Day: Sony Reader Touch

I love to read. I read whenever I get the chance. But as anyone knows lugging around heavy books or more than one book at a time is crazy and takes up space in your bag.

That is what I love about the Sony Reader Touch. At 0.4 inches thin and less than 10.1 ounces, this is the convenient way to access and store up to 350 of your favorite books wherever you go. The elegant, lightweight design features a six-inch display that lets you turn pages with the swipe of a finger. You also can take freehand notes and highlight sections of text, just as you would in a real book, using the supplied stylus. For added versatility, this digital book supports multiple file formats including ePub and PDF so you can access to more books from more places, including The eBook Store from Sony and over one million free public domain titles from Google books.

The Sony Reader Touch can also entertain your toddlers. Who would have thought! Se the Reader to the tablet and let them draw to their hearts content.

Choose from the different accessory options such as Sony Reader Cover, Sony ACS-5220E AC Charger, Sony Reader Digital Book Car Charger, or Sony Reader Cover with Light to receive a great value bundle for your Sony Reader Digital Book PRS600.

  1. Awesome product! Just wanted to let you know I keep getting pop ups when I visit you!

  2. i have an allergy to paper , i didnt when i was younger ,and one of my favorite things used to be to curl up with a hot romance or a scary horror book and read! i used to put 3-4 books away a week no matter how busy life got i just had to read even if it meant staying up til 2-3 am. i am so aggravated with trying to find things i can cover my hands with so i can read, nothing works, so i read, i get in pain stop reading for a few weeks then try again, now it can take me 2 months to get thru a book. this seems like a perfect solution, now to try and save the money for it out of my disability , by the time i do that something else will be out lol, thanks for the great review on it

  3. My dh bought me one of these a year ago and I love it. What I think sets it apart from kindle is that you do not have to purchase books through the kindle store only. You can buy books from different sites, in say PDF format, and upload it to the reader. An added bonus is that I no longer have a huge tbr pile of books cluttering my living room.

  4. A friend of mine has one, and she loves it. I played with it, and I think it’s a cool and portable way to read! I didn’t know about the tablet feature though, that’s awesome!
