I hope this is the appropriate newsgroup for this question.
I'm look for recommendations for a *very* simple ebook reader. Pretty
much all I want to do is download classic works from the Gutenberg
Project and read them when I'm traveling. So all I really need is
something that can store and display text files with reasonable quality
some sort of navigation function.
Would it be foolish to try to find an old PDA on eBay? Or are there
dedicated readers with much better battery life?

A friend gave me his old Palm IIIc which I use for that very task,
downloading ebooks from Project Gutenberg onto it. I have installed the
Acrobat reader onto the PDA, I convert the Txt ebooks to PDF with the
free Open Office word processor software - download ebooks onto the PDA
and I'm away. Couldnt be happier.
