Ereaders and all that fun stuff

I'm pretty happy with my kindle (basic edition - 7th generation) and I got it in a ridiculous low price (49$), but I'm always on the look out for new devices. The problem with the kindle is that it's limited to the amazon's ecosystem, as sideloading books gives you access to limited features.


If you thinking of buying an e-reader and you live in Europe you should take a look at this:
