The good thing about studying in the UK, is undoubtedly that everyone and the media speaks and write in English. Though it’s likely not a benefit if you’re into learning new languages, it’s definitely heaven for an avid reader with less budget like me, because all the books in the library and the bookstore are in English. As my lab’s based in Surrey, I applied to membership in Surrey Library, which is a big consortium of61 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.
