I was looking for Kindle alternatives the other day and ran across across this vlog about best e-ink devices of 2013. of note for you may be the Icarus and sony large format e-ink readers.
the vlog authors at http://www.youtube.com/user/go... have their own store. You may want to look into the (rather expensive) sony and icarus pen enabled devices.
