Adventures in eReading

I just received my Sony eReader in the mail today, after it sat twenty-four hours just two hours from my home. For a "Pocket" eReader, it sure is big! Happily, it came preloaded with eight books, and two book excerpts. Now if I could only read German...

I am now trying to download free library ebooks, but curiously enough, the library won't let you do this on their computers. This is frustrating, to say the least. Does the library administration not consider that if I am coming to the library is to use the Internet, I might not have a reliable Internet connection at home? Why else trek miles to the library? Crazy!

Luckily, I was able to find a Mac to borrow (one time only, sadly!), and after two hours of technical jargon (at midnight, mind you), I finally had success! I can now read Committed, Racing in the Rain, Soulless, and This Book is Overdue! on my eReader!

Now if I can only figure out what I'm going to do after the books come due...
