I have a lovely Sony Reader. It ranks as one of my top 5 Christmas gifts ever. But I cannot for the life of me keep it charged. (I have the same problem with my MP3 player and to a lesser extent, my cell phone.)
I've only read 1 e-book this year (despite being determined to read more) in large part due to just not keeping it charged. Then I leave it at home, because I can't turn it on anyway, then I just don't read anything on it, etc.
So how do you manage? And why does such a stupid little thing have to make me so technologically behind and challenged?
