Interesting Pocketable eBook Reader for $49-$79
Nothing special or new here, but this guy seems to have a good thing going on eBay. He is taking Dell and HP PDAs and customizing them as eBook readers that support many formats. This might be what I'm looking for. Something just for portable usage and cheap.

My only concern is battery life. According to the auction, the battery lasts 3-6 hours when listening to music AND reading and a whole day's worth of reading if just reading. I don't mind charging it on a daily basis, although many of you won't want a device that needs to be charged a lot. You know me though, backlight is necessary for me.

That looks like an old 3970. I have one of those and a new battery would do fine but my battery is really old now and shot. It has a 3.7" screen which is larger than most and mine was updated to 2003 firmware but it originally came with Pocket PC 2002. It makes a good eBook Reader, keep the backlight as low as you can. I would wonder how old the battery was.
