LookBook vs Literati vs Augen The Book vs Aluratek Color Ereaders

Thinking about picking up one of these dirt cheap, as a night reader for bed time.

Really attracted to the physical attributes of Augen The Book!

What say you? Any of these worth getting?

Augen is dead, so that one is out. I'd go for a tablet.

While I like my Literati, they have been abandoned and some folks have had trouble with theirs.

My gripes are the page forward button is too far down for my not so large hands and the library menu takes some getting used to after the simplicity of the eBookwise. The battery indicator gives no clue as to reading time left. The case stinks for a few months. It's way too easy to buy books through the reader ; )

Yes, we own 4 Augens. I just put the books on an sd card and pass around the cards! You can also add music to your device and play it while reading your book!

I just noticed the eBookman is still on the list. I sold it last summer.

Of the others, I really only use the Literati and the eBookwise 1150. The others were picked up during the search for the "perfect" reader. The 1150 is still by far the favorite but, for some reason, I'm reading on the Literati more often than not.
