I am considering buying an eBook reader.
I want it for reading so it isn't in competition with a tablet.
I have read the threads and now have a couple of specific questions.
First Calibre. There is a really amazing online novel I am currently reading (The Last War, if anybody is interested) and it is released in Word to a Yahoo group. Will Calibre allow me to convert this to something an eReader will let me read? Is there a better eReader for converting Word to something the eReader will accept?
At present I am not keen on a Kindle because it won't accept Epub and the Many Books website is a goldmine of free books. Is there a workaround or something I am missing.
Second, a lot of what I read and want to read is not actually books. It is news usually in the form of a news website such as Stuff, The Register, news.com.au, the Herald or similar.
What it the situation with this kind of content on eReader? I guess the perfect thing for me is something similar to the App experience I have with my phone. Is this asking too much?
What is the availability of magazines while I'm asking?
