As good as amazon is, I… just don’t like their ecosystem. I know it’s silly and stallman-esque but ‘does not support epub’ is a bit of a turn-off for me since that kinda just… I don’t like it.
I liked barns and noble’s tablets, but none of them are particularly sturdy. OK the nook HD technically works but proporitary cable meaning due to my lack of funds situation good frakking luck buying a replacement.
I’d go with a kobo, but… Yea. Most of my material is side-loaded I’ve collected over the years, stripped the DRM out of, and kept organized via calibre since calibre is awesome.
