BooksOnBoard Offers Hot New eBook Readers at Hot New Prices


BooksOnBoard, the largest independent eBook retailer, is proud to announce the latest additions to its stock of eBook Readers: the Sony PRS-300, the Cybook Opus, and the Astak EZReader Pocket Pro. All of the new devices are pocket-sized for convenience, have ample storage for hundreds of eBooks, offer a great paper-like e-Ink reading experience, and support the widely available industry standard Adobe ePub format.

“BooksOnBoard has offered Sony Readers and Cybooks for over a year now, and they are great devices,” says BooksOnBoard CEO, Bob LiVolsi. “Our customers prefer the experience to reading on a paper book, and say eBook Readers are far more portable and convenient than lugging around dozens of books – and allow them to carry entire libraries in one device. Readers were a hugely popular Christmas gift item last year, so we recommend that customers purchase early.”

This new generation of eBook readers represents great progress in making eBook Readers more affordable. The Sony PRS-300 and the Astak EZReader both retail at for $199, and the Cybook Opus retails for $249.

“All of these devices are extremely high quality, and they are at a much more affordable price point,” says Nathan Johnson, Director of Operations at BooksOnBoard. “The Sony, Cybook Opus, and Astak EZReader all utilize the extremely popular Adobe ePub format, which is easy to use and can be accessed on a Mac or PC as well. The Adobe format also allows users to save and store their files to their computers – so files don’t mysteriously go missing in the middle of the night. Many of our existing customers – who have built up Adobe libraries over the course of several years – are now purchasing eBook Readers because it makes sense financially.”
