Social ebook reader 6" eink

Hello.

I am looking for new ebook reader.

This is what is important to me:

* screen, 6" or better
* excellent battery life
* fast page turns
* ability to read ePub, PDF (also with DRM)
* Support for hyperlinks including Table of Contents
* PDF Zoom (not just font selection)
* PDF reflow would be nice
* WiFi + web browser
* social connecting (ideally connection to goodreads.com)
* english dictionary

less important:
* PDF annotations + note taking
* extensible storage such as SD or microSD card

Querty keyboard would be better than touch screen...

Is there ebook reader that supports goodread.com? As far as I know, Sony readers have support but it is only from PC from Sony software not ebook reader (because of WIFI lack)

Amazon Kindle 3 supports only facebook or twitter (no goodreads support)...

Thanx for advices

You can access goodreads.com by entering the entire URL <http://www.goodreads.com> into the browser (listed under "Experimental" in the Menu). Yes, it's a pain, but you only have to do it once, and then you can bookmark to page for easy navigation to it next time.

I had no problem just now when I attempted to access GoodReads from my K3.

No, you can use any web site you wish with the Kindle's web browser.

However, given that it doesn't support ePub, that's irrelevant.

True, the Kindle doesn't support ePub. Which also knocks out a lot of library books, if you're interested in that aspect.

I have decided! Amazon Kindle 3 wins. goodreads.com can be sync with it http://www.goodreads.com/user/kindle_settings and also it has support for facebook and twitter... Everything I need. I will use Calibre for converting ePub books to mobi or prc :-)
Thanks budies

I thought you said that the ability to read ePub books was essential to you?
