ebook readers for .lit

Firstly let me apologise if this has been posted here and I have missed it.
I am converting my old out of print paperbacks to .lit and reading them on my ipaq pda. This is fine but as you will appreciate I only have a 75mm by 56mm screen. What I am looking for is a commercial ebook reader that will handle the .lit file format with a larger screen. Any Suggestions?

thanks

The Hanlin V3 (BeBook, EZ Reader, other brands) reads DRM-free LIT ebooks. However, some other formats display better on the Hanlin. Calibre (which has its own forum here) will import DRM-free LIT and export LRF, ePub or MOBI. All of these "format shifts" work well, and almost all reading devices can handle at least one of these formats.

If the LIT ebooks have DRM (encryption), this can be removed with "ConvertLIT GUI". Note that this may be illegal where you live, but it is hard to see who is hurt by dong so on ebooks you own for personal use.

If you don't want to remove the DRM, then you are limited to Windows or Windows Mobile devices. All EInk devices are currently running Linux, although some may use WinCE in the future.
