From reading the comments, and the fact that there's no picture of the device, I think I'll give this a miss for a couple of years.

There's always Project Gutenburg as well. They have something like 36,000 eBooks available for downloading to a computer or to Kindle etc. for FREE.

These are all books that are out of copyright or in the Public Domain. So old HG Wells books (for example) are readily available. :wink:
