Looking for comments about Sony’s Reader (PRS-505) and Linux

Dear lazyweb, this time I am asking for opinions and comments, rather than writing my own 🙂

Today I’ve been trying to clean up my home office, and I seen how many reference books I have that I could have downloaded, or at least bought, in PDF format, rather than printed or bought in solid paper form. While I’m quite a bookworm and would probably continue buying novels in solid paper form, I’m considering an electronic paper device for technical references (which are also those who take more space in my library at the moment).

I was suggested more than once the Sony Reader.. while I don’t really find myself a Sony fan, I can see they are quite advanced in what they do, and being able to read standard PDFs should be good enough to me, as I just need it for reference manuals (for now). I also seen there is a project already to get the reader to work on Linux, and it seems well developed, so I’m trusting I would get it to work on Linux quite easily.

But as I like first-hand impressions, does anybody have any comment to give me about this?
