Amazon Kindle/Sony PRS

I think this is the right area to post this, if not will the moderator please move it.

I am thinking of buying either a Kindle or a Sony PRS (either 500 or 700 series). Has anyone had any experience with either? If so, what are your thoughts?

As one reader to another, I played with an earlier Sony offering and found the whole concept to be cumbersome. If I need info, I hit the web. If I want to relax and read, there's nothing like turning the paper pages of a real book.

BTW, you can't see the screens in bright sunlight.

My wife could stock a library with all of her books, so I plopped down $400 for a PRS-500. Within a month it was collecting dust.

As Rick alluded to, she had to be able to turn the pages.
