Sony’s Reader

I’ve been saying for two years that my Sony PRS-600 Touch is an excellent ebook reader, but that the Sony ebookstore’s broken. They seem to have finally noticed the problem, and this morning they’re offering a new version of the PC/Mac software, now also called Reader, required to access the store for older, non-networked, Readers. I’ve already discovered a couple quirks, but it’s clearly better than the old Reader Library software that many have learned to hate.

I may say more later. Just reporting a preliminary reaction at this point.
