Post New to this site...

Hail & well met fellow MobileRead members I am not new to the ebook concept - I had a Dell Axim x51 at one time and loved reading on a small device!! However, it died and I bought a Zune HD, thinking it would surely have an app for reading ebooks, which it did *not*, so I sold it and am now looking for a nice, inexpensive ebook reader. Hence, my membership here. I am hoping for some expert advice from you lovely people!! I believe I have it narrowed between the ViewSonic ereader and the Astak Mentor 6". I read in another thread that it was to have wifi at one point. Does anyone know if this is true or not? I don't see any reference to it having that capability in any of the descriptions I've read online, however, I did read (old tech review from 2008) that it was to have the capability. Anyway, if there is anyone who can assist me with choosing the best inexpensive reader, I would so appreciate your help!!
Thank you in advance,
ravynsong

It really does depend on your expectations and what you want to read - why not check out the Flea Market, there's a Jetbook lite on there for $60 at the moment. It's not epaper but it might suit to get you started.

Anyway, welcome and good luck with your search.

Good to have your company, Ravynsong. You'd do well to check out the posts in the 'Which one should I buy?' forum. Good luck. Neil
