TheBook from Augen might not be perfect but it’s not that bad either, especially for costing under $100 and for everything else it can do for that price. The 150 books included are a fairly decent selection that I think most people will find enjoyable. It does have its little quirks that you’ll have to deal with, but for an inexpensive ebook reader I don’t think it’s too bad. You can use the SD card slot to expand the 2gig of onboard memory and you can use wi-fi to browse the web. The ability to play videos and music is a nice bonus, it does both fairly well. All in all I like it, sure it isn’t the best option out there, but for a beginner ebook reader it does the job I think.
