a RITA(R) Award, a Romantic Times BOOKreviews Career Achievement Award and is

    The Reader Digital Book by Sony is a portable electronic reading device.
Its high-resolution, high contrast electronic paper display technology
provides a reading experience very much akin to ink-on-paper.  The crisp text
and graphics are highly readable, even in bright sunlight. Roughly the size of
a paperback novel, but thinner than most (about .5 inches thin), the device
can store hundreds of books and other documents using a combination of
internal flash memory and optional Memory Stick(R) or Secure Digital (SD)
flash memory cards.
