Replacement for Pocketbook 301+

I have (and love) a Pocketbook 301+. It works fine, for now, but one day it's going to die. I'd like to determine what would work as a replacement.

1. I want an ereader that supports a wide range of book formats just as my 301+ does. Epub, mobi, txt, and rtf are a requirement.

2. I don't care a bit about touchscreen, though I suspect most ereaders are now touchscreen.

3. I don't care a bit about WiFi capabilities.

4. Backlit would be nice, but not required.

5. I do not want a tablet.

6. 6-inch screen would be nice, but not required.

7. I don't require store access (like Amazon, B&N, Kobo store, etc.)

Sadly, I can't find a dealer of Pocketbook devices in the US anymore. I'd readily buy another one, but that's not possible so with your help I hope to find a suitable replacement. Thanks for your input.

Looks like the Kobo Glo or Aura is the way to go for me. Mods, feel free to close/delete this thread at your convenience.

If you like PB, why not stick with them? They make some excellent devices, and there's no problem buying from their European store.

Where would I find this European store? Each time I go to http://www.pocketbook-int.com/ it directs me immediately to http://www.pocketbook-int.com/us/ and I can't find a way to buy anything.

Their store is at:

http://www.pocketbook-readers.de/

It's in German, but that shouldn't prove any obstacle.

Oh! Thank you. I never would have found that.
