    I will describe my ideal e-reader. Tell me if such a thing exists.
    >about 5 inches by 3.5 inches or so, small notebook sized
    >e-ink
    >opens all the common file types, no need for some shop or anything like my current kindle paperwhite, no fucking advertisements and shit
    what should I get

      So you basically described a Kindle. I hope you didn't actually think you can't open your own files on a Kindle all this while. They'll support EPUB pretty soon, so if you already own one of those, keep it. If you don't there's prolly someone here who'll know something less zogged than Kindle which does the exact same job.

          Kindle only supports azw3/azw4 an ebook file format derived from mobipoket's format. You can easily convert epub to azw because they are both different containers for a reduced set of HTML.

          If you choose to email your shit to your Kindle, it basically supports everything save for EPUB. In a few weeks time it'll handle EPUB too. Never seen a real conversion issue, even for shit with images in them.

          I know I can open my own files. Except epub
          I really just want something smaller...

          Why'd you want something even fucking smaller

      Just to be clear, Kindle already supports most file types.

      What this

      ClaraHD

      guy said, buy a Kobo. The cheapest one is the ClaraHD (the one I own). It supports all files and you can download ebooks from Zlibrary and then upload them to the e-reader.

    The PRS 505 was OK. It was made as a one trick pony by Sony, who then abandoned it becuase like everything those Japanese Suits do, they made it before the technology matured and became mainstream. You can still get these on eBay for 20-30 USD, but their age means the batteries are shit, so you'll be buying Chinese aftermarket to restore them. I like them because you can use two memory cards, but for some reason the dipshits there made one a storage only option, you cannot read books from it. But you can absolutely make this have 32 GB of storage with old junk MicroSD cards and an SD card adapter, which is really nice. The build quality is there, the feature set was nice, but the OS is lackluster and the number of options available pale to a modern one.

      But don't people want their e-readers to be "front-lit" or whatever it's called to avoid eyestrain? I thought that was the whole point as to why people buy them instead of just getting normal tablets.

    for e-reading I still use the kindle touch I got years ago. Maybe I have shit-taste but I don't really know what I would want in an e-reader that this kindle touch doesn't offer.

    any reason why they don't make kindles with actual page turning buttons anymore? I don't trust touch screens

      The higher end models still have them. They don't because they can advertise them as waterproof, which is hard to do with buttons.

        My oasis is waterproof and has buttons. They just wanted to be as cheap as possible and buttons cost money.
