That is Nook Simple Touch (no light version)
a lot of essay have images
also I use to read grphic design magazine, I don't wanna waste money in tablet with 1000 of shit on like games and craps. I need something for reading.
Also I read a few marvel a french comics, so.
How did you get cbz files loading off the sd card? Mine's refusing to add them to library.
Still, it is by far the best ereader on the market ( disregarding the dire state of its book store).
Get some KCC'd sadpanda torrents on there. But use png output because it doesn't dither the palette properly for jpegs
>only read epub/mobi, PDF experience is shit
Nah. Novels and textbooks are 98% of my lectures. Just showed comics, because with PDFs they are one of the most difficult for the ereaders to properly display. Pic related for you with an old, a bit cracked Nook Classic as a bonus.
They exist but are extremely rare, expensive and colors they display are like a shirt washed 2000 times in a shitty detergent. For color things stick to the tablets.
Better go to one that is used to have students copy whole textbooks, otherwise depending on where you live you might get some'' but dats illegal I cant do that sir'' bullshit. Never happened to me though.
you avoid the upfront cost of the ereader, but 5€ pr. 250 pages quickly adds up.
I personally got mine to pirate and enjoy books as easily and hassle-free as with movies/series or games.
The idea is good for school books though, most of the pdfs of books I use to study look fucking atrocious on this reader
pretty sure the nook is 6"
anyway I use a kindle 4 but I'd like a Kobo Aura HD for my mangu, except fuck spending 160€ for an e-reader
pic related, except not mine
I've got an Aura HD but the touchscreen is shit. Some times it locks up and doesn't recognize any touch until you put it to sleep and wake it up again (then it may or may not recognize all your touches at once) or just jumps two pages at once instead of one.
I wish this thing had fucking buttons.
I just got one second hand for £90 (RRP £129.99) and have had no issues thus far. I've been marathoning Kodomo no Jikan on there via a torrent from nyaa which I fed through Kindle Comic Converter which has a preset for for the Kobo Aura HD. It looks absolutely tremendous, though for that particular ereader I'd recommend PNG output as it is incapable of dithering a JPEG for some reason. It is truly comparable to reading print text (especially when you turn the light off) and has a larger screen than most other ereaders.
Got an Aura HD too bit expensive so I just pirate all the books I read.
The screen is pretty good and works well for my chinese comics, SD card slot is really sweet too.
The case can't handle fingerprints and I wish it had some buttons to flip pages but other than that I'm really happy with it.
Need to get some protective case still.
>pirate all the books
This. It is the only real option given the absolute shit the encompasses the entire store. Its either womens shit, military/spy shit or melodramatic/stupidly inaccurate legal shit.

6 inch, 600x800 resolution, E ink
Regular screen, physical controls
Doc, Docx, PDF, txt
Storage: 4gb internal, no capacity for upgrading
I use it quite frequently, both for books and for university work, preloading notes on to it and bringing them with me is much more hassle free than printing the things
Yes! Indeed it is! *throws him a cookie for the good job he does*
same as this anon, bought in september 2011 for €150
pirated lots of books which motivated me to read a lot, best money i've ever spent
Nook HD+ (fuck why did they not update it to JB I don't know)
It looks great on color things, only problem is that when you turn off the backlight it works just like a regular ereader.
It is what it is, if you really put the backlight to the lowest setting, it would seem that it doesn't have any light coming from it.
You can still read it okay if you have a good light source though.
Nope. Played on monochrome one though. But I cannot remember a colour LCD display, that without backlight is readable effortlessly.
Yeah, I have even used a laptop with broken CCFL lamp in the screen, but it was a pain in the ass.
Can you post a photo of that Nook in no backlight state?
Myth. You lose eyesight no matter what the screen is.
People reading books in the 17th century would be myopic. It's all about looking at a thing right next to you all day for years on end.
Advantages of e-ink are:
Much higher battery life
Readable in any light condition that real paper is readable in with one caveat- some have backlights so that range is extended even into darkness.
Onyx Boox M96 has 9.7 inches. Not enough?
And there is a Sony 13" but its sales are limited as fuck to selected clients.
No problem, mate. I am going out, be back in about 90mins anyway ;)
>price of a bottle of vodka
I don't drink.
>Readable in any light condition that real paper is readable in with one caveat- some have backlights so that range is extended even into darkness.
Then it's not useful if I do a lot of comfy bedtime reading.
Isn't that what is 7" tablets for?
How do I know if I have the requirements, and how do I download what's missing?
>Then it's not useful if I do a lot of comfy bedtime reading.
I do a LOT of comfy bedtime reading with my kobo glo. It's great. You should have a bedside lamp on, since reading from a glowing screen isn't very comfortable. I could turn it off, but the lamp is too dark to read from it with the backlight off, but it's bright enough just to provide some comfy atmospheric lighting.
Also so I can see where to put my glasses.
How laggy is the Kindle Paperwhite? My Kobo Aura is pretty responsive but the web browser constantly flashes its screen while scrolling and tapping and it takes about five seconds to open a book from the home screen.

Any imagemagick inputs to
1. Detect dual page spreads
2. split them automatically
I could go write a script myself but I'd like to know if one already exists.
I'm forming how to do it in my head already; split them based on image ratio. Find the width of the first image (or a sample image in the folder) to use that as a reference, and then use that width to split in half any image that is roughly double that width.
Naming them is pretty trivial.
