You may need a bit of luck buying online, but chances are that even really old devices have plenty of life in them.
But even those 13-14 years old ereaders have wifi, at least most of them. It's pretty hard to find anything without wifi, no matter how old.

Probably the easiest ones to find without WiFi are the Sony PRS-650s and PRS-350s. And they're still pretty good readers.

My 650 really does need a new battery. Also it's not good with hi-res images. It's either very slow or reboots.

My dad was able to find someone to replace the battery in his PRS-650. He's still using it. I think for just reading novels it's fine. I've mentioned buying him a new device but he's still rather attached to this one.

Batteries are widely available for these and relatively easy to replace. Four screws, a piece of trim and it doesn't even look like the battery is glued down.

How to replace...

Shipped from California in the U.S. ($16.98 includes shipping)...
