The good thing about studying in the UK, is definitely that everyone and the media speaks and write in English. Though it’s definitely not a benefit if you’re into learning new languages, it’s definitely a heaven for avid reader with less budget like me, because all the books in the library and in the bookstore are in English. As my lab’s based in Surrey, I applied to a membership on Surrey Library, which is a big consortium of 61 community libraries in the County of Surrey .
It seems that a few years journey of owning e-book readers, which in themselves pretty uncommon in my circle, made me quite the “expert” in the field. Though my expertise is definitely amount to nothing compared to countless others in mobileread, my knowledge is apparently enough to at least give some views to the confusing start on e-book reader world for some of my friends’ question of “which e-book reader shall I buy”. Disclaimer: This is only my view, however, maybe different with other people.
I had always been interested in this phone since its launch, but the price point was the downside (400+ GBP was too much for a phone for me). Recently I’ve stumbled a post in Mobileread and XDA , saying that it’s been discounted to 100 GBP price point, which’s pretty rational, if I do say myself.
Previously I have written about both my T1 and my Glo. Now, I’m writing about my reading setup: files, settings, and whatnots to create e-book articles from non-books and for reading. There are a lot of setups and tutorials available (especially in mobileread), but these are I use the most/ most comfortable in. (not really into using them wirelessly, syncing and stuff)
