Looks good but is it backlit?

Its not backlit. But you can use a little clip on light. We have this one and another sony model, and far better than the kindle imvho.

they're better for your eyes if they're not back lit.
that's one of the reasons i prefer sin- my astigmatism hates backlit.
even using the phone for internet hurts my eyes.

Sony, even. not sin!

yes, Sony were the ones that perfected the technology.

Um now I just need to work out how to get a spare £79....

that's exactly the problem I'm facing! grin

I had a Sony and loved it but epub books bought are much more expensive than equivalent on Amazon so i have switched to kindle. Works with most libraries though and all the free books.

i think Sony ones now can take more formats.
it's not a tablet though so you csn't download the kindle app.
but you can get hundreds of free ones.
