In perfect condition (except for the battery, they naturally age, but new ones can be found), comes with charger (I bought it separately) and cover. I might even throw in some e-books.
I have a 100% positive feedback rating on e-Bay (not a lot of them but enough to trust for a sale like this) and am willing to prove ownership of the account.
If you buy it I will ship worldwide by ordinary mail (with insurance !) and accept payment in BTC or PayPal, preferably the first.
Make an offer and the best offer wins (if it' not insultingly low) ! Reply here please and not by PM so people can see how much they need to offer to outbid you.
Cheers !

Not a lot of readers here it seems... Maybe a little more info will help.
Here's how the gadget looks :

Beautifull, right ?
The reason I'm selling it is because I'm getting a newer version. But this serves the purpose just as good if you're not a tech junky like me.
What is an e-reader at all you might ask ? Well it's a portable electronic device which is made mainly to display text (books or manuals) on e-paper instead of LCDs. Now e-paper in very short is ink which moves around by the influence of electricity, so you're not watching any backlight glaring into your eyes (and making them hurt), you're just watching natural sunglight reflected off the movable ink. Consider it a picture that moves.
What can you read ? Anything. A lot of formats supported, lots of free books out there (some are even legal).
Why not read on your desktop / laptop / mobile phone ? Well you're mobile phone's screen is too small for decent reading, and you can't exactly read your desktop / laptop in bed lying on your side, can you ?
You could even pass this off for a gift, it lookes new !

You should state what kind of low insults you Smiley

I assume you are in the US, is the changer multi-voltage?

2 BTC?

That kind of low doesn't insult me, it makes me laugh really hard...  Cheesy
For 2 BTC I could sell you a cardboard cutout picture of the device, strait from the original box. I'll even include my original autogram. For 1 more BTC I'll even include my personal autobiography (which hasn't been written yet, but I'm sure you'll find it fascinating to read nevertheless).
If you want to make a serious offer the charger is US plug but universal voltage (I add a US -> EU plug adapter) and I'm not in the US.
The device originally cost me 350$. Obviously it's depreciated but a box of cereal won't cut it.

I am not sure if I'm amused or insulted by the tone of your reply... I'll go with amused, it's way too late here to get insulted Smiley

The 2 BTC was a half joke, of course, as that will probably only just cover the shipping, but still a base line of what you are willing to accept would be good.

As for the USD price, I understand the "I bought it for..." thing, I really do, but that serves very little guidance here. You don't use it, so it's not worth the price you paid when new, it is worth only what you can get for it, assuming it's enough to get you to part with the device. For base I saw http://www.amazon.com/Sony-PRS-505-LC-Digital-Reader/dp/B000WP2RC2 where you get it new for $250 and used starts at $135. Of course these used ones have a bunch of perks attached, like amazon as an escrow, the knowledge that there is some warranty and if you don't get what you ordered you can just take it back for a refund.

Which means that, in all seriousness I can see myself giving something in the order of 5 BTC, maybe a little more if the rate goes any deeper, though I've got a feeling we'll see some mild uptrend now.
