I looked at the site and it looks like you can order the EZ Reader. Has anybody ordered one yet??

I don't think you can order an EZ Reader yet. The MobiEbook website seems to only have a pre-order form.

Robert gave instructions on the other thread about how to order by emailing his assistant.

Per www.mobiebook.com, "WHY WAIT!! Click on the following link and you can purchase the EZ Reader NOW for $299...". Then if you follow the links to http://www.mobiebook.com/buyezreader.asp, there are active buttons to add the reader to your cart. Sure looks like they are for sale NOW...

I stand corrected! The Buy button does in fact go to a pre-order page and not to the cart. Sorry...

I do believe that the store is open right now. Fingers crossed that they ship soon...

I got an e-mail that the EZ Reader is available for sale. I don't really need another reader as I am still enamoured with my Sony 505 after several months of use. So, I have been on the fence. Both support epub and I have a bunch of epub books so feeding another reader is not an issue for the most part. I started down the order path on their site until I got to the payment screen. I backed out because payment is via 3rd party that I have never heard of, durango-direct.com. I'm pretty sure it's OK, but I am not comfortable giving my credit card info to someone I have never heard of that doesn't appear to be directly connected with the store I'm buying from. Paypal or directly handling the credit card would be better. So, I backed out of the transaction.

Has anybody heard of durango-direct.com? Has anybody else ordered an EZ Reader yet?

I picked up one on the 23rd, and so far my bank account hasn't been drained, and according to FedEx, the reader is slowly working its way across the country. If they deliver on the estimated date, it will have taken 10 days for it to get from San Jose to Boston. Not exactly speedy, but I think Thanksgiving can be blamed for that.

My EZReader was supposed to arrive today, but Astak does not allow the package to be left unless a person is actually at the door to take delivery. I have never seen this for "small" purchases from companies that routinely ship stuff. Amazon requires a signature above $400, but does not require someone to be home. My Iliad was more than twice the price of the EXReader, and eReader Outfitters shipped it without requiring a signature on delivery.

So my EZReader will probably go back as undeliverable. I tried calling Federal Express, (to have it delivered to my work address) but only the shipper can make changes. I was afraid of this when I saw that FedEx was the only shipping option - they are much less flexible than UPS.

No... they usually make three attempts to deliver before returning. So, they should try to deliver again on monday.
