My family is all doing the Amazon Kindle, so I am switching from my Sony eReader over to Amazon. This eReader is a little over a year old and works great. It just won't link up with Amazon. Books are available from Barnes and Noble. The eReader comes with the reader, a burgandy cover, a power cord, cord to the computer and all the books currently loaded on it. It is a touchscreen. They retail new for about $150, so this is a steal. Just in time for Christmas!! Whoohoo!!
