Aluratek Libre for sale on Tiger DirectIt’s not so unusual for readers to appear rebranded in the overstock stores, but this one is something worth considering if you’re testing multiple types of eBooks. Check out this strange sale; it appears that the LIBRIe is alive and well in the Tiger Direct warehouse. I have to admit it’s a tempting reader, even after so many years… The LIBRIe offered native support of PDF, ePub AND mobipocket books — a useful combination in one reader and a very rare find for a eBook device in Canada.

The price point is a little to high for most — $240 will buy you a lot more than a 4 tone reader. I’ve got to keep my hands out of my wallet until we hear more about the apple tablet.
