   Hi, I just yesterday got the Kobo Libra 2.
   It has a USBc with 32GB of storage.
   I used Calibre to download books in epub format and connected the
   ereader with wifi turned OFF and transferred the books using Calibre.
   The tricky part is setting up the ereader without wifi. This work
   around did the trick
   Please let me know if this is clear.

     File format support should include common eBook formats that one can

     (I'd imagine PDFs and epub are reasonable choices).

     The device should offer the ability to be recharged, ideally with
     batteries I can
     replace. It's also okay if the device needs to be plugged in while
     using the device.

     It's fine if the device has no upgradable software on it so long as
     what's on the
     device works reliably. Editing and/or marking up what I'm reading is
     not required.

     Does anyone know of a recommendable device that would do these

     I looked in [4] and
