Open Book:

"As a society, we need an open source device for reading. Books are among the most important documents of our culture, yet the most popular and widespread devices we have for reading — the Kobo, the Nook, the Kindle and even the iPad — are closed devices, operating as small moving parts in a set of giant closed platforms whose owners’ interests are not always aligned with readers’.

@neil If your book is a PDF(/A) or text file, you can read it pretty much on anything though

@neil you might be interested in this group too.

They recycle kindle screens and glue them to an ESP32. Someone wrote an epub parsing library for the ESP as well.

@neil I was gonna say PDF too. The whole online Gutenberg is made with PDFs
