from the where-oh-where-has-my-e-ink-gone dept.

My ad-supported Kindle's buttons are dying, so I'm in the market for a new eBook reader. I figured the upcoming sales would be a good time to buy one. To my surprise, eBook readers seem to be regressing rather than advancing.

My hard requirements are:

  1. e-Ink display
  2. Text-to-speech
  3. Doesn't need company's software to transfer books.

My preferred features include:

  1. Good PDF support. I want to read technical books on it, something I can't do with the Kindle.
  2. Stable software
  3. Doesn't spy on everything you do. Kindles track absolutely everything.
  4. Support for multiple voices. The same voice gets annoying after a few books.

I'm unable to find anything which fulfills all those conditions. Any recommendations? Before you say smartphone, it needs an e-Ink display. Are smartphones and tablets killing eBook readers?
