spideyak, I suggest that you consider two very inexpensive alternatives.
The Ectaco jetBook Lite is now $56.95 at newegg.com.
The jetBook Lite is my favorite because I love the jet black text of the screen, and because it uses four (rechargeable if you like) AA flashlight batteries. Buy two sets of rechargeable batteries, and you never need to wait when the batteries run down.
Geeks.com is now offering the Aluratek Libre Pro for only $29.99. The Libre Pro uses the same screen as the jetBook Lite.
Both the jetBook Lite and the Libre Pro read many different formats including Adobe ADE DRM'd ePub as well as non-DRM'd mobi/prc.
