I think an ereader could be that cheap if you're okay with the text coming out at a fixed rate on a single ticker-tape line with just Play/Stop buttons, and maybe some <</>> buttons for changing chapters. Otherwise, I think you're underestimating how much more complicated the ereader is than the music player. The latter is more or less contained in single chips now, while the former still needs a general computer to operate.
