I called support about the problem of removing 'I am reading' from the desktop and was told that the five books that always show up there cannot be removed until there's a software upgrade. There is something in the user manual that tells you how to do it, but the instructions have no connection to what is on the screen.
I would also prefer to have a blank screen when I'm not reading -- and I noticed that the picture from the cover of the book that stays on screen seems to 'burn' itself into the screen a bit. It does seem to go away later, but it lingers and I'm not thrilled about that.
And am I the only one who thinks the little blue button is going to wear out quickly? It feels like it will be one of those soft buttons that you use a lot that after a while doesn't work on the one contact you need. Like a phone when the 'talk' button seems to lose contact. Since you press the right side (next page) so often, it makes me worry that it will be harder and harder to use after a while.
That being said, I do like it, so far -- but I'm keeping the box and the receipt handy for the year, just in case.
