I didn't notice the covers, Barbara. But when I try to go to the page to see the prices, it just displays regular prices. Creepy. laugh

Well I don't want one anyway. I'll be selling my Sony soon, I think. I like lighted ereaders....well at least I like my lighted Paperwhite, next week or the week after I will be able to say if I like my Glo, too. I'm psyched. My son has been using my Kindle Touch, but, he could just as well use my Paperwhite.  So might sell that too, or give it to my mother and sell her keyboard.

The Sony, somewhere around $75. Maybe more if I put it on ebay, but they lowered the final fee for ereaders so I'll have to see what it will cost to list it there. 

Not sure about the Kindle, I'd have to talk to my mom.

Come to think of it, I'll probably keep the Touch. I have my main Calibre library on my paperwhite, my paranormal romance library on my Touch, and the Kobo Glo will be for the other 4 Calibre libraries (divided by genres). And then the Mini will have whatever I am reading now, to throw in my purse and take.

I didn't know ebay had a special fee for ereaders. That might explain why it's been so hard to find a used, functioning one for cheap. My brother dropped my kindle, so I bought a Kindle 2 this week off of Craigslist for $40. I'll just get a $5 book cover and use my Spike Light to illuminate it lol. 

It would be nice to have more than $10 off the Paperwhite Amazon Kindle though.

That's right, Barbara. You'd have to go with the Kindle Keyboard or Kindle Touch for that.

Nexus 7's are awesome, from all accounts.

My Kobo Glo should be here today.....if the timing works out, DH will be asleep when I bring it in.

Holding my breath that, at last, I will have the perfect ereader for my needs!

Well at this rate I'll be dead from lack of breath before it gets here. It was in the post office distribution center last night, but I still didn't get it. The UPS to post office delivery thing sucks!
