E-ink reader that works with Scribd?

Hello,

New here but glad to have found these boards. I have, and like, the Scribd service but find that I just don't enjoy reading on an LED phone/tablet. I end up buying Nook books to read on my Nook Glow because it's so much easer on my eyes. So I'm looking for an e-ink device that can use Scribdvia mobile apps or a browser without costing hundreds of dollars. Fine with a small monochrome device, preferably backlit like my Glow.

For those who aren't familiar, Scribd offers a wide selection of ebooks and audiobooks to read and enjoy for a monthly rate, something like Netflix for books. You're not buying them outright. It's a good service but it means the selections aren't portable like titles you purchase and can download for other devices.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Sorry, not much help here but there is an article Scribd in our wiki. Please update it if you find a good solution. There is a lot of E Ink eBook readers that run Android described in our wiki.

Most Android based e-ink tablets should be fine. If you also use Scribd’s audiobooks ensure you get one that supports audio.
