This is a must have gadget. Soon after buying ours we went on a cruise and whilst all around were struggling with their books in the strong winds on deck we had no trouble at all. Equally the screen works in bright sunlight and is easy to read. Given the number of books it can hold it is a brilliant thing to have. We did not go for the all singing all dancing model because we have a wireless network at home and are able to download all the books we need there. We don't have a need to be able to get on the net on the move.
