Re: Par for the course

"The new ones force you buy books from their website (not even alternatives) so its a book reader with very limited book choice excluding all the classics that should be free."

The store application on it only integrates with the Kobo store, yes - that's kinda a given. However, the device supports Adobe's DRM, so you can use Adobe Digital Editions to authorise it and put any Adobe DRM'd content on it you want. You can also sideload any non-DRM'd content onto it. My Aura One has nearly 300 books on it - two were purchaed from the Kobo store, and the others are DRM-free books purchased from other retailers and side-loaded. None of the above information is hard to find (it's on Kobo's site under FAQ, IIRC) ...
