What could be more romantic than showing that special someone that you really understand and care than a selection of great books that tear at the heart strings. Well, one improvement is to present the heartfelt library in a classy, compact package like the Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-600. While the eBook reader is also available in black or silver colors, your passion will come shining through by selecting the seductive red version with its elegant finish.
The PRS-600 is so slim and light that it can be carried along as a constant reminder of your thoughtfulness and good taste. Everyone loves a gift that is personal and while the reader itself is just electronics, its contents can be made to house everything that’s dear. Combining the assets of Sony’s Reader Store and Google Books makes well more than a million books available for inclusion with the gift. It’s pretty tough to beat that for lending a personal touch.
The Reader’s internal memory will house about 350 of your sweetheart’s favorite titles but memory can be expanded virtually infinitely by using either a Memory Stick PRO or SD cards of up to 16GB. That’s a great opportunity to make this a gift that keeps on giving as time goes by.
The Sony Reader comes with just a basic black neoprene cover for protection but far more interesting options are available. Our favorites include ones made of premium leather, some of which even include a built-in reading light. For the more adventurous reader, BookArmor offers an exceptional travel case.
Content that can be loaded to the PRS-600 isn’t limited to books and periodicals, either. It can be filled with your most treasured, shared photographs as well as a collection of your loved one’s favorite music.
This is truly a gift that keeps on giving as your special someone will be reminded of your generosity and thoughtfulness every time a new selection is ordered, whether it’s romantic or not. You certainly can’t say that of a chocolate sampler or a bouquet of roses, which in either case, will be nothing but a fond memory before the month is out.
