    If you are getting it primarily for reading I would suggest looking at the kindle (regular) or nook touch instead. E-ink is much easier on the eyes.

    I'm considering getting one. The price point definitely makes it attractive.

    I picked one up last week and I love it so far.
    You can root it so it runs android and use the full market and what not.

    I also don't look like a douche when I bring it outside with me since it's not that big.

    @Mises:
    I want something with a backlight of some sort. I have the very first ebook reader which I got like 4 years ago? And there is no backlight! Sucha drag when the place is even slightly dark...

    @paulpapapump:
    I went on Kijiji found a guy selling it for $275, we'll see if its legit on Thursday. Plus, you can buy it online from different stores that ship to Canada, and that would be $285

    @kahwhyc:
    What do you mean by 'rooting it'? How do I do that?

    Rooting is kind of like jailbreaking a Apple product.
    There are many guides on the internet that teach you how to root. This one is the one I used. When you root your android product, you can access the full potential of the product and do a lot more to it such as custom ROMs.
