Best e-reader for me?

Hi everybody,

I'm planning to purchase my first e-reader so I need your advice.

- Lightweight and portable.
5" or 6" screen so I can carry it with me on the plane (I'm on the plane two hours/day).

- Support å, ä and ö.
While most of my reading material will be in English (I really need to improve my English skills) there are a few that will be in Swedish.

- Ability to transfer books via USB.

- User replaceable battery.

- Compatible with Mac OS X (Lion).

Why do you want a user replaceable battery? eReader batteries can be recharged and the charge will last for weeks and the batteries themselves will last for years.

Agreed. I took my Kindle off the charger on January 30th. Since then I have read about an hour a day, every day and I still have about 30% left. That is a complete guess on my part as the Kindle doesn't give percentages. Regardless, it still has quite a bit left even after reading for 17 days.
