chris. How easy are the books to download though? I normally have trouble with computers and struggle with anything even slightly technical.

Also, are the Discworld books available?

I'm not sure if these will work on a Sony E-Reader, but have you checked out Project Gutenburg (or should that be Goodmountain?) :wink: They have thosands of books there and all free. They are books that are past copyright, so there's no problem there and it's great if you like classics.
