Your jetBook Reading Lamp will be new, not used.
This comfortable over the ear hands-free light source lets you read your ECTACO jetBook in low-light situations, without disturbing others. The high-powered, adjustable beam puts the light just where you need it. This way is much more convenient than fussing with a clip-on book light. Works great with regular books, too.
The Ectaco jetBook e-book reader works well under many lighting conditions. But it's more like a book than a computer screen, so in dim ambient lighting conditions a reading light is recommended. And we have just the thing for you.
This over the ear light is also good for "dead tree" (paper) books.
Unlike the reading lights that clip onto a book and give you glare, this light provides the recommended over the shoulder lighting.
These tips apply to eBookReaders, in general. Some may not apply to your particular eBookReader. Some apply to any mobile device, even if it's not an eBookReader.
Keep your accessories in a zippered pouch. You can find a suitable one at any office supply store.
If you have SD cards or MMCs, keep them in a special case made for these cards. Put it inside your zippered pouch.
Generally, new accessories do not come out after the device has been on the market. But sometimes, they do. We carry the current offerings of accessories, so check this site to see what's available.
If your eBookReader has an li-poly rechargeable battery, don't charge it for more than 6 to 12 hours.
If your batteries are alkaline, consider replacing them with rechargeable ones (pick up a charger and batteries at your local office store).
You've invested in an eBookReader. Now make that investment pay off by choosing ebooks of substance. The occasional novel is OK, but the device is best used to boost your brainpower by reading nonfiction.
In the USA, people tend to be grossly unaware of their own nation's history. This is a huge mistake, and it's why the federal "elections" are mostly ineffectual. If you learn why things are they way they are and how they got there, you're well on the way to being properly prepared for civil participation.
Many nonfiction titles are life-changing, and that's true across many genres and subjects. Consider health, career, interpersonal relationships, and history just to name a few.
A phenomenon called "convergence" occurs as more devices share the same or similar features. Many mobile devices have similar auxiliary programs. Interestingly, many users of Device A will buy Device B to get functionality that's already on Device A. Check out your device to see what all of its functions are.
Most of the non-reading programs won't be useful to a particular person. What usually happens is different people like different things and so you're likely to find one or two of these programs exceptionally useful. Play around with the device a bit to see which of these best suit you.
As with most gadgets today, if it malfunctions reboot it. The button that turns the screen on and off does not turn the device on and off. The device has a reset button. This doesn't completely clear the memory, though. If a reset doesn't fix your problem, remove the battery(ies) and after waiting about 15 minutes put the battery(ies) back in and restart the device.
If the device has an SD card or MMC, pop it out, pop it back in, and reset the device.
Back in the old days, travelers would accidentally forget the novel they were reading when getting on or off the plane. Oops. But a small loss. Then this transitioned to cell phones and laptops. Oops. Not a small loss. A solution to this problem, at least with eBookReaders, is to use a wrist tether. You can also just follow the cue of airline pilots and climbers by having a set procedure you go through even if you're "sure" everything is OK. Get in the habit of turning your eBookReader on and then back off any time you rise from a seat while traveling. This may sound silly, but what happens is you must always touch that device and be aware of it before moving. That keeps you from leaving it behind.
Generally, eBookReaders don't get stolen. There's a much higher risk with laptops because the theives are not so concerned with getting a device; they are after the data (e.g., passwords and, in the case of corporate laptops, proprietary information). However, this doesn't mean eBookReaders don't disappear when you're not looking. Rather than set it on the chair next to you, put it in your carry bag or set it on the floor under your foot.

I tried one of those lights that clips onto the book. What a hassle. This over the ear one is much easier to deal with. The downside is I have to remove my Bluetooth for my phone, and I like to just wear it all the time. Maybe there's no perfect solution, but this is much better than what I had and now I have no trouble reading!
