Hey,

I own Sony PRS-350, I've read a bunch of books with it already and quite happy about it. It is small enough to put into the pocket, it is very nice to read in bright sunlight as screen is reflective, but beware that none of these e-ink readers have built-in screen lights, so you will need a lamp to read in the darkness.

It is similar to Kindle, exactly the same screen, also with touchscreen, some differences:
- Sony supports for PDF "reflow", e.g. if you have a book in PDF format, which is designed for large format it can try to reformat it to feet small screen. Doesn't work with all PDF-s, but sometimes is very useful.
- My reader has silver case, which shines in the bright sunlight, where Kindles are dark.
- Sony readers are a bit more expensive that Kindle.
- Kindle store has better choice of books, but it is possible to convert books as well.
