Using a Sony Reader PRS-600 to make notes on academic articles.

I’ve been very impressed with my Sony Reader PRS-600 since I got it last week. It’s a great device for reading, highlighting and taking notes on academic articles. Since before I couldn’t find much useful video on how the highlighting and note-taking functionality works, I’ve quickly put together the above two minutes by way of demonstration.

Hope it helps. 🙂

  1. How is the 6″ screen for reading journal articles and other pdfs that are larger than 6″ diagonally. I’m looking for an ebook reader for academic purposes and most journals are more like 9-10″ diagonally. Does it shrink each page of the pdf to fit the screen?

      • When reflowing, how does it handle headers and footers (page numbers, titles, etc)?

        Also, are your notes locked in the sony software or can you export them somehow? For example, you might want to send someone an annotated article.
