Two things I'm considering and need advice on

Hey everybody,

There are two things I'm thinking about doing, and I'm looking for feedback, comments and suggestions.

1. I'm thinking of getting laser eye surgery.
I'm quite near-sighted and not a good candidate for contacts because my eyeballs are too flat. However, I have been told I'm a good candidate for laser eye surgery. I don't need glasses for reading, but I need them for a clear view of anything that is more than a meter away from me. I live in a blurry world. My glasses live on top of my head.

So my questions are: Have you had it done? Do you know anyone who did? Did you/they regret it or has it been a positive experience? I'm a little bit scared, not so much that I'll be the one percent who goes blind, but more that something weird might happen to my eyes that makes it difficult for me to read comfortably. I really love reading..


The second thing I'm thinking of doing is buying an electronic reader for $89.95.
It's this one: this: http://www.ebookwise.com/ebookwise/ebookwise1150.htm
It's a pretty good price. I currently use my little netbook to read ebooks on in PDF format, but it weighs about three pounds if I take the electrical cord with its heavy plug along with me, which I mostly do. I'm hesitating because Asus is supposed to be coming out with a super thin combination netbook/reader next year, but I can see it taking at least two years to get to Canada. I want something small and light to read M/M books on, but ideally, I would like to have net-surfing ability too. I know that won't happen with the reader. To tell you the truth, I'm kind of scared of the new technology and afraid I won't be able to figure out how to upload my books, etc.

I hate wireless internet because it's so unreliable in the downtown area. I never bother to use my netbook for internet when I'm out, anymore. Another option would be to get a rocket stick for it, but I'd still like to have something lighter. Should I buy it or just make do with my netbook and wait for something better to come along? Do any of you guys have readers or rocket sticks? Can anyone give me the benefit of their experience?
