Those things are ancient. You may want to remember that they may have around 128 KBytes of RAM - of which about half was available for storage. There were expansion cards (I hear rumors that they went to 4MB). The one I bought in 1990 had no expansion. And (quoting from Wikipaedia - mine won't turn on now) "The LCD is monochrome without backlight and had 240x64 pixels or 40 characters x 8 lines."
Lots of luck getting a useful reading experience out of that...
I'd get one as a curiosity now - not for use..
