Actually i am interested in getting an e ink reader to read PDFs. Does the Kindle 8 basic or paperweight come with native text reflow function? Not advisable to use the reader to read the PDF directly like that?

You can't reflow PDFs (which is the point of PDFs; it shouldn't be reflowed.)

I won't recommend a Kindle for PDFs. A device with a larger screen size would probably be more suitable.

I got mine from them last month. It is with ads (you can remove it later), seller mentioned the ads version on their page. So far so good

Actually the ads quite ok, appear only on lockscreen and when you are not reading. It also show useful discount on some ebooks too.

Can be removed too, bought 1 from them a few months ago. Lazada got discount codes to use and also can use shopback to make it cheaper.

Which is the best ebook reader in your opinion? currently using the kindle 2014 ver but there is a line on the screen which affects the touchscreen.

Is it true that other Brand of ereaders can purchase books from multiple bookstores unlike the kindle which can only buy from amazon?

Not true. Kobo readers can only be used to buy ebooks from kobo store.

Unless you're talking about e-ink readers that basically run the android OS as front. Even so, you have to download their respective apps (kindle app, kobo app) to buy books. So far these ereaders are very buggy, very slow and crash a lot.

I am thinking of getting one myself for a planned trip aboard. May I ask how much you have paid for yours, and what 'freebies' were included?
