Any eReader without App Store nor Book sales?

Hi,

I am looking for a good eReader without any kind of app store nor book sales integration in its system. All I want is only read my own books. (Most downloaded from here.)

Other specifications are:

6 inches
Frontlight
ePub format
PDF format

Is there any that fits with?

Thanks a lot.

PDFs are hard to read on a 6" screen, but otherwise just about any non-Kindle reader can handle side-loaded EPUBs without forcing you to use an proprietary bookstore or app store on the device.

You might take a look at PocketBook/Tea readers. They do have a bookstore feature, but you don't have to use it or even register the device to an account. If you've got a large book collection, the library management software on the device recognizes keywords and series information you attach in Calibre.

Yes, almost all my books are in ePub format, only a few are just text PDFs.

Thanks for your reply. I'll be waiting for more options! I am going to check PocketBook.

I use a Kobo and never buy books on the device - they are all sideloaded from Calibre. Is there a reason you specifically want _no_ store integration, as opposed to just ignoring what's there?

(Also as you probably know already, PDF as an ebook format is riddled with problems. If you want to read highly formatted or large-page-size PDFs, a tablet is a better choice.)
