Recovering books from bricked device?
I tried to add a root the device and now it does not progress beyond the circular refresh arrows when it restarts (after the reader application opening screen on reset).
Looks like a hard factory reset (unless someone has a suggestion pls?).
Is ther any way of recovering my books from the device before I do so please...I have not backed up the books and have spent ages sorting out the collections!
Any suggestions much appreciated.

When you connect the reader with the USB cable to your PC, can you see the reader as a drive? If so, you can just copy all the books from the reader to your PC.
I know this is after the fact and not helpful for you now, but my usual process for books is that they're on my PC first and always, and then I copy them to the reader. You can just drag-and-drop at that point to copy them over, or use a better book managerment program like Calibre (which is what I use).
If for some reason you can't get the books off the reader, you should be able to redownload any that you've purchased from the online stores. But I never trust my books to only one location, especially not the one location most likely to lose the books through a reset, or even worse, lose the reader entirely and with it all your books.
