What do you do when you lose your ebook reader?

Last weekend, I lost my Sony Pocket Reader. I keep my ebook library synced with Calibre, so I didn’t lose any books, but I did lose my annotations and review notes.

Yesterday I went shopping for…something not an ebook reader.

And I came home with this:

Sony PRS-T1

What can I say? I fell in lust. (And yes, it levitates. So awesome.)


  1. Haven’t lost mine permanently yet – but had a couple of hairy moments where it wasn’t where it should be and I decided to leave it and look when I had more time or more brain space and found it.

    If I lost it permanently – I think I’d cry.

    OMG! I think I’d die if I lost mine. So glad you didn’t lose any books though. I love Calibre! I have three reading devices and all of them sync to Calibre without a hitch.

    I have to admit, I’m eyeing off that Sony……:)

    SNAP!  I bought that one last week and I am completely in love.  It’s my first ereader though, I have yet to experience the heartbreak of its loss.

    Marg — What do you use? The Sony software? It’s been updated since the last time I used it so I can see how it would be okay to use. I like Calibre because it doesn’t dictate how I do things. I feel a bit less restricted and I know exactly where all my books/settings are.

    Rhian — I just moved my Calibre library to the cloud, so now I can read my ebooks anywhere. It’s fantastic. I’ll probably post more after a few days of playing with my new toy.

  5. Kat says:

    I need that for all my gadgets, especially the TV remote control. We used to have a keyring tag that, if you whistled, would whistle back. I don’t know why this isn’t an industry standard! :D

    Yikes Kat, how did you lose it? Calibre is a great concept but I haaaaaaate the interface. It’s the most hideous application ever. I would use it more often if they fixed it up to be more friendly.
    Wondering about the levitation… Wingardium leviosa?

  7. Kat says:

    The Calibre interface is an offence to UI design, I agree, but the first version of the Sony software that I tried was spiffy looking yet functionally demented. I prefer ugly and working to pretty but confounding.
    It’s le-vee-oh-suh. :D
    Oh, and I lost it because when I looked in my bag it was no longer there…
