Are you looking to try out an e-reader on the cheap? Does the Kindle just not appeal to you? If so, you might want to look into grabbing an Astak EZ Reader. This new reader just went on sale today at Newegg for $250 (via Engadget) which is a very good price for a 5" reader. The Astak has a 400 MHz CPU, 512 MB of RAM, an SD slot, and a built-in MP3 player.

If the Astak sounds good to you, give our full review of the product a look before you buy. While the EZ Reader is a solid, cheap e-reader, it does have a few shortcomings. The lack of 3G, or even WiFi, is a pain in the butt, but not a major issue. This is a bare bones e-reader; don't expect anything more.
