Back when the T3 was still on the market new, I bought my T3 from B&H which is US store. Not sure how they had it.
I think they sold Sony eBook readers from the beginning. They still sell the Sony Electronic Readers. (I think that's what they're called.) Here's a page from the Wayback Machine. Note the prices! (Gee, my old eReaders were worth a fortune!)

Yes, the back cover connection is finicky. And if you are a klutz like me and drop the reader, the cover will likely come off and you'll have to start over.....

I mostly read on my Kobo or Tolino now but I've pulled out the T3 a couple times when I was reading a book that had a lot of unfamiliar words. Having both the American and English Oxford dictionaries was so great. Even obscure slang words from a hundred years ago are in there.

I also liked the small form factor of the T3.
Both the Kindle and the Sony had the same dictionary. It didn't occur to me to load both the English and American Oxford. I'll see if I can do that.

They did, I was just unsure how they had the T3 since it wasn't generally available in US stores.

They should both just be there on your Sony, no loading required

I'll probably post them on the Flea Market, but leave a notice here.

B&H is one of the big NY camera and electronics stores that frequently does their own grey market importing of items not normally distributed in the USA market so they undoubtedly sourced the Sony T3 from a wholesaler in Europe, Canada or the far east. This frequently means that the authorized USA importer and distributor will not honor the foreign warranty if the item develops a problem. I know that this is true of Nikon and some other importers.

Now that you mention it, I have a vague memory of being aware of this when I bought the reader years ago. I guess I decided it was worth the risk at the time. And in my case it was, since the reader still works.

Not as good a buy as the OP's lsting but I just found a PRS-T3S on ebay, listed by Goodystore, for $35 plus shipping and tax for a total of $47.48. Bought it. The T3S is the no case version per the listing but I have a NOS Sony lighted case waiting for it. I have bought readers from Goodystore in the past and they have been as represented.
