  • Perfect for the Holidays!

    Such a great gift! I have always been a old-fashioned reader and was kinda hesitant when i first received this from my family. Was I completely wrong! Since I am an avid reader, I often hated carrying my larger books around whenever i would go on vacation. But with this, I can read wherever I want, and if I wanted a new book I could just get a new one without having to run to my local store! The Literati has very vivid colors. It is also very easy to read because of its adjustable font and brightness. I've been hooked on this ever since I got it! The Literati is also very simple to use! My kids love to read their favorite children stories, while i love being able to select from millions of books ranging from cookbooks, children books, and even bestseller books! I recommend anyone that knows any reader to get him/her this for the holidays!

    I've been a skeptic of wireless readers since they've come out because I enjoy the experience of reading a traditional book so much. But this reader has been amazing! It's lightweight, I love the full color screen, and it comes with all of the classics that I've been meaning to read over the years. Honestly, I would recommend this to anyone, especially if they are skeptical about e-readers....they really can improve the reading experience!

    I have had an e-reader for 5+ years and thought that I would upgrade to color since they are very reasonable priced. In fact, I also bought one as a gift since the price was so reasonable. However when I purcahsed the Literati, I was not able to find any drivers to connect the reader to my computer, so I was not able to download any of my previous books from my other e-readers on to this new one. The ONLY way I found to get new books on this e-reader was to use their wireless interface. This is all fine and dandy if you don't mind buying all of your books again and have a wireless network in your home. Unfortunately the person that I bought this item for as a gift does NOT have wireless in their home and I would hate for them to have to go to a wireless hot spot to add books to their reader. So not only was this worthless to me, since I can't add any of my previous books to the reader, but it was also worthless as a gift for someone without wireless. Both readers were returned! While I was not able to connect the reader to my computer currently, I am sure that the Literati will have drivers in a few months, since they are selling so many for Christmas, however I do not want to wait around until the drivers are released.

  • Literati

    I was hesitant about e books - I am an old fashioned book lover But this is convenient to carry, and when I run out of reading , I can just go to the store and get another book - while sitting in my house! Plus, I do not have to scramble for reading glasses or good light - print size and lighting are adjustable for these middle aged eyes. My only slight complaint is that the location and design of the page turners often leads to my turning pages inadvertantly, but then I just scroll back

  • Changelled grand daughter

    My grand daughter is challenged and reading was not one of her fortes. So I got 2 of these. One for her sister. She wouldn't put it down and started reading and enjoying reading more. She carried it to school although it was not permitted but it was great to see her actually read a book. I got these for Christmas and it was one of the best gifts they got (so they said)/ I thought it would be better for her sister to have one to and they both enjoy their own. Thank you O.co

  • Waste of time and money

    I purchased the Literati ereader in 12/10 as a Christmas gift. Since then I have returned the product totaling (3) times. Peace of Junk. I would never recommend or purchase ever again.

  • Great Reader

    I bought this for my husband and my nine year old daughter has latched onto it. It is very user friendly. We load books on it all the time and it serves its purpose. For a basic reader I could not ask for much more.
