For those of you who are interested in getting an e-reader but think that the price is ridiculous, Sony is offering a deal where if you sign up for their credit card and then buy the PRS 505 (silver) Reader you will get a $150 rebate. That's a reader for basically half price. Also if you spend at least $500 a month for the first 6 months on the card then you will get an extra $200 credit. That should be easy enough to do if you just use your credit card to pay your rent! http://www.sonyrewards.com/en/gateway/?offerlink=snreader300
