Three Rocket eBook 1100 & loads of books for sale $100

The Rocket eBook came out some time ago, and was an excellent device. Unfortunately, the company that took it over decided to abandon it, so no longer could buy books. However, you can still get many free classic books from Gutenberg.com and other places.

These have features that are not on some of the more current ebook readers . They are easy to use, have backlighted touch screens, you can download any type font and size that is on your computer (to get very large type for those who need it), the lighting and contrast can be adjusted, the batteries last a long time before needing a recharge, the text can be read either vertically or horizontally, it has a built-in dictionary, you can make bookmarks or notes, you can switch between two type sizes with a push of a button, and there are a lot of other great features.

I bought the eBook 1100 several years ago, and loved it. I got a second one for my wife. A friend who had ordered a lot of books (as I did) when Gemstar announced they were discontinuing support, gave me his with a lot more books.

When Sony finally came out with the Reader, I immediately got that, and then about six months ago got the Kindle. My wife now "owns" the Reader and I the Kindle. As we can read the Gutenberg classics on both of those, really have no use for the three 1100s anymore.

They all are in excellent condition, each with a case, charger and USB cable. I have the original CD with the Librarian software, and have burned that and all the books to another CD. I have more than 400 books for these, plus many free classics from Gutenberg. Each device has some books on it, so can start reading immediately. The books are all listed on the CD. Each device can only take the books purchased for the account on that book. However, in my Librarian software, they are all listed, and can be re-downloaded to one of the eBooks registered for that particular book, so among the three devices, all these books can be read.

These would be especially good for somebody who has had one or has ever used one. Like any such device, learning to use the software to load books takes a little time, but you can just turn them on and start reading. I will be glad to help with any questions or problems via email or phone for any buyer.

It would make sense to buy all three so all the already-purchased books can all be read on the one they were bought for. I'll sell all three for $100 plus shipping. Send PM or email.

Is that $100 for all 3, or $100 each?

If the price is for all 3, I call dibs.

Just think of it as another reason for you to come to the DC meetup.

Will power isn't the issue. What you need is "Won't" power. I think I saw an online offer for that mixed in with the Viagra/Cialis/Penis enlargement spam and I can forward it...

ah, is *that* my problem. you're right, it does sound more plausible. you can keep the spam though ; i'll just check my own spam folder, i probably got one of those in there already.

to be honest i was quite sincerely tempted, if only to be able to compare with my eb1150, but 1. i suppose i don't really need 4 nearly identical lcd devices for a household of 1 (the cats, try as i might, are stubbornly illiterate), particularly since overseas shipping would probably cost more than the selling price, and also particularly since i'm hoping my next device will be e-ink, and 2. it would have been sad to deprive nate of the immense pleasure of increasing his gadget collection.

he's famous for it, you know.

What you could have done was buy all three, and sell two of them to Nate and use part of the purchase price to cover the shipping.

Really a splendid bargain! i was also temped, but i am already getting a pda from Ricky. However a pda + an actual ebook reader combination would be nice, and support almost all formats out there

Nate, in the future if you want to sell one of these(maybe for a little less), then i will be the first one in line. I am out of money at the moment, so wont make any offer now. But in after a months time, probably i will...
