Back-to-School with the Sony eReader


My older son Andrew is a reading machine. He owns more books than toys and attempts to sneak flashlights into his room at night just to read. When I got the new Sony eReader PRS-T2, I surprised him by giving it to him as a back-to-school gift. I had previously purchased him a Nook by Barnes and Noble, but the games and Netflix were too tempting that he never ended up using it for reading. 

Andrew has been in school for a month, and still loves his Sony eReader!


My favorite feature of the Sony eReader was that it serves as that one purpose - a Reader. I don't have to worry about him sneaking in a game of Angry Birds or watching a movie. When I see him using the reader, I know he is only doing one thing - Reading!


The Sony eReader is very easy to use. We were able to complete setup on the reader within just ten minutes. He quickly purchased the next book in the series he is reading, and was enjoying time getting caught up in the story. The only feature that I thought might pose as a concern was the flashing screen, but Andrew said that it does not affect his enjoyment of the eReader.


The Sony eReader is thin and light. It comes with a matching stylus pen and has wi-fi capability.


My son is always carrying along a huge stack of books which usually end up inside of my purse. Now that he has the Sony eReader, the only thing that is being stuffed into my purse is a lightweight reading tool.


My son Andrew has fallen in love with his Sony eReader. He spends hours a day reading on it, and the soft grey scale screen is easy on his eyes.


He is even able to use the eReader for checking out books digitally from our local library. 


The Sony eReader PRS-T2 is available online at the Sony store for $129. It features:
  • 6" eReader
  • Glare-free E-Ink Pearl V220 touch screen
  • 2 GB of storage
  • Finger swiping page turn capability 
  • Eight font sizes and styles
