Besides, if your country is anything like mine, there's always a new sale - just a different name like New Years Sale or End-of-Season stock!
So far, I'm using a light that clips on the cover and I'm fine with that. No glare whatsoever (it's the same result as reading in the sun.
Regarding the sales, unfortunately we don't have that much over here. But one can always find a good deal given time

Maybe I was mistaken, I thought the epub3 format would help in displaying nicely the Japanese characters. However, I've seen a Kobo Touch (1st generation???, it has a silver button under the screen) on a YouTube video and the characters were displayed the Japanese way with furigana (small characters providing the reading of some kanji).

Anyway, the Kobo seems to be a good contender and since my Sony PRS 650 started to act strange today , maybe I'll have to consider a new device rather soon.

Thanks again to all of you.
