You can read your eReader ebooks on many device types, but not currently on Linux (and so not on EInk devices). There will be EInk devices supporting eReader DRM "soon". It is likely that EZ Reader (US Hanlin V3) will be one, but it may be worth waiting until the software is actually available before counting on it.

The other option, not legal in all places, is to use ereader2html to strip the DRM and then Calibre (say) to convert to LRF or ePub or MOBI. Then you choice of device is independent of eReader.
