The Ease of eBooks

A great deal has been written about how easy it is to purchase and download a book on the Amazon Kindle. The Sony PRS Reader is only slightly less convenient in this regard. On more than one occassion I have seen a book being discussed on TV, went to my computer and purchased it, and then connected the Reader and transfered the book to it before the discussion was over. This week I got an add for a book by email, looked for the book online to see if it was available in eBook form (it was), and then purchased and downloaded it. This may not be the most compelling reason to buy an eBook Reader, but it is so nice, not to have to wait to go to the bookstore or the library to get the book you want.
