Sunday so far

I was up late last night unwinding and reading.  I got out of the house today to run a couple of errands, with some thunder rumbling before and after my trips.  The rain held off while I was out, though it had just rained when I went outside.

I caught up on AfterElton.  I wrote in the e-reader forum about the Sony 350 and the Kobo Touch.  I've been pleased with the Kobo Touch.  I don't think it's quite as intuitive to use as the 2010 Sony Touch editions are, but I learned to use it pretty quickly, and it's easy to use.  I love the font size choices.  When I've used it, I've been making the font size for epubs a little smaller.  You get a lot of options of font size.  Epubs are easy to read on the Kobo.  The "quilted" style back of the e-reader is very nice, too.  I find it comfortable to hold, and the e-reader is lightweight.

The Sony 350 hasn't been any challenge to use for reading on it.  It takes a while to boot up, and yesterday when I was trying to load a few books on it and get ready to leave, I went against my better judgement and started an update for it.  That was taking a while.  When I hooked up the 950, it apparently knocked the 350 off the updating, and the 350 went off, or was stuck in some boot-up mode that made the screen blank.  I put it on the charger, took the 950 with me, and left. 

When I got home, I got the 350 working again.  I got a couple of books loaded on it, saw that I could read them, and turned off the machine.  I'll see how it works when I try to turn it on again.

Well, I got out of the house and got some things done, though the weather wasn't that great.  I have lots to read, and several machines to read them on.
