Received notice of this deal in my email recently, from Books on Board. The price of the Sony ereader is cheap if you have the money to front a $500 gift certificate at the same time.
I'm still in love with my IPAQ, so won't be taking advantage of the opportunity. I thought someone out there might be interested, though.
An IPAQ story. Tuesday at Girls Night Out, when I wasn't visiting with people, or eating crab cakes, or staring at the river, I took out the IPAQ and read. Also checked my Outlook calendar, showed a couple of people pictures of my son, the cover from the book I'm currently reading, and my cover for Where Her Heart Is (see right column here). You know IPAQ is multi-talented, right? I could have checked email, but the restaurant's wireless doesn't work on the downstairs patio.
One lady drooled with me over the cover of the current read, and later she saw me reading--and was so intrigued that I had the book with me in that tiny little device. I guess, before, she just thought I had pictures stored in IPAQ.
She wants to read ebooks. I could see it in her eyes.
