epub / ebook reader 

Building up a new reading list so I'm sorting through paperback purchases, epubs and PDFs that I'll slowly acquire: the non proprietary ebook reader question comes up again.

Has anybody had any success with devices such as BQ cervantes (supposed to run on published software?) or The Open Book ( Are there others out there that I'm unaware of? Ideally, I'd like to manage my lib with Calibre, ok with it being a bit more manual. E-ink is a must.

Ideas / thoughts ? Thanks!

@colm remarkable? Pricy, but I'm hearing good things about it.

@jboy woah, didn't even know these stylus based ones existed. They look cool, but I'm automatically weary about the multitasking that these are trying to provide. I get what they're doing but I don't think it's for me.

I'd really only be looking for screen, simple nav buttons and file management.

Annotations sync with Calibre would be a huge bonus, but not essential.

@colm yeah, I understand not wanting a full-fledged computing device for those purposes.

I'm pretty sure Calibre offers to sync reading position to my Kobo Touch, not sure about annotations though. (I haven't tried either.)

@colm I have a pocketbook inkpad 3 and really like it. Loading pdfs/epubs etc is super convenient via dropbox, if you're happy using that.

@yaxu thanks, I'll look into that!
