For about two years now we've owned a wonderful laster printer, made by Lexmark. It's really great and has served us well so far. About a third of the stuff printed pertains to work, school work and such, while the rest is spent on Marli's biggest hobby: fan fiction. So far, we've gone through about 22.000 pages.
Seeing how Marli will probably not stop reading fan fiction any time soon, I'm thinking of saving both us and the environment a lot of hassle. I'm thinking of purchasing an eBook reader for Marli. By now the Hanlin V3 (made in China by Jinke) is starting to look pretty good. I could buy it locally for E299, or import it from China for E239 which is quite a difference.
That's still a pretty steep price, but when compared to other eBook readers it's actually not that bad. The dutch Iliad is fscking expensive at around E500 :(
Of course, the biggest question would be if Marli would even like using the device. Would it be easy enough for her to put new books and chapters on? Would she like reading from electronic paper? (Remember, these aren't LCD screens!) Would she get used to the buttons and such? It's a shame that there isn't a shop in the Netherlands where we could try a few different models out in person.
Maybe later... Maybe later...
