I want a reader to read on. If it can hold a lifetime of books, I'll probably keep it for a lifetime (mine or its). So it is very relevant to me.

I expect anything I fork over 100 dollars for to still be functional in 5 years (though I don't expect the battery to last that long of course).

But it sure sounds like the battery won't be a problem.
