Like many here, after getting my first ereader I watched sites like ereaderiq religiously for freebies and downloaded many of those. But most of them just weren't good enough. So I gave up. These days I buy most of what I read (KU isn't available in my country) and no longer look for free books.

You can highlight and export on a Kobo as well. Of course Kobo has never had 8 titles per page.

I noticed lately their article titles are misleading and false. Annoys the crap out of me. Like the one that suggests they know how well the note taking on the scribe is yet never touched an actual model.

There is NOTHING on the internet or amazon.com to suggest a new Oasis. I hope for one. I hope for 64GB

Well it's even worse now... they made a YouTube video on it.

Yeah, they base this article solely on search results from the Amazon store and Google. Not realising, that these are simply terms people are searching for...

So good news!

Amazon is not just going to release a new Oasis, but also a new Voyage (2022) in the next couple of weeks!

Ha. I don't bother with that site.
Certainly there was a Voyage on the 4th of November 2014.

I disagree. The best thing Amazon could do is allow user defined margins and line height.

The Oasis is not a luxury device. It's just a seriously overpriced device. There are no luxury Readers.

If you can, return your Finte case. If you can't return it, throw it away. Finte is garbage. They wear out long before they are supposed to. I am not the only one to have a Finte case wear out long before it's time.

kwmobile makes good cases that do last. My kwmobile case is still going strong after about 5 years of heavy use.

Sign up for Tor's free eBooks. Tor does gie away some good ones. Granted, they are mostly the first book in a series.
