I wouldn't mind the battery being used to some degree, the book reader batteries don't use anywhere near the power that a tablet does.

So - yep even if it meant that I had to recharge a back lit ereader once every day or second day etc then fine by me.

The alternative is - I don't use a current generation ereader, or a future generation ereader without it, and I don't think that I would be alone in making that choice.

Dedicated ereaders face stiff competition from tablet devices, so one wonders how much longer they'll be developed anyway.
