    intro—being a tech enthusient, who heappens to enjoy reading, I constantly find myself scouring internet forums for information regarding the newest ereader tech, it's one of my favorite consumer categories. the idea is that it will maximize the reading experience through sheer convenience, outstanding functionality, and strong flexibiltiy. having a yearly goal of 52 books, the easiser it is to read, the likelier it'll be that I complete my lofty goal. further, being someone who doesn't carry a smartphone often, I strive to live intentionality and find that raeding is one of my favorite intentional acitives. the idea of a pocket ereader woos me wit the promise to fulfill all these desires.
    thus the hunt began, starting with my first device the InkPalm 5.

    hardware—the device is well-engeineered and stoutly built. it's built with intetion, the hardware design is timeless. it's handsome and free of quirks,
