Subject:Nook replacement?
Time:02:37 am
I've somehow damaged the screen of my Nook Simpletouch. It's not too bad at present, just a blotch a couple of letters wide and high near the bottom of the page, but it's a bit annoying and I'm worried it might get worse. It's not urgent, but I think I'll replace it if I can find a cheap substitute - but it must be an e-ink based ebook reader, not anything with an LCD screen, the power life is too limited on anything like that.

I get the impression that this technology has to a large extent been sidelined by cheap android tablets etc., but if possible I'd like something a bit faster than the Nook and easier to organize - you can't organize books into "shelves" from the computer with Nooks - and Calibre compatible.

Any suggestions?

The Amazon Fire tablets are really inexpensive and first rate.
They have a type of Android OS installed, and some proprietary Amazon software, but you can wipe everything and install a standard Android OS if you want to. I'm going to wait until Black Friday, when they should be discounted about 50% from current prices. I currently own a 4th generation Fire HD 7 that is about 3 years old, but still works well.

Isn't that an LCD screen?
