Attention Hackers: Lookbook now available at Overstock.com for $123

I posted a review of this ereader a couple hours ago, and a commenter  pointed me at the product page for the Lookbook. They're selling it for only $123.

Do you like to hack the software on your gadgets? Here's your chance to get a Lookbook and start a new project. If someone could give this ereader a new reading app and web browser it would be one heck of a gadget.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Send me one and I will see what I can do. 🙂

  2. It’ll be $100 after ECB on Black Friday. And still not worth it.

  3. Please need some help.
    ¿ How do I read my books from my SD Card

  4. Load the books onto your reader. Go to the books tab and if its not there shut it off and put it back on.

  5. My 10yr old just got one for Christmas and it does have some issues getting started but overall wasnt too bad. Takes forever to charge the damm thing and the charging port is touchy to say the least. I got a bunch of books and comics in pdf format, loaded them onto an sd card and had no issues with it finding the card and displaying them under the “DOCS” tab but it did NEED to do an update via the wifi before it became user friendly.

  6. I got one for christmas and can not get books to download to it or for it to sync up with kobo. Do any of you knw how I go about doing it?? Help!! ready to return it!!

  7. Where can I find a book cover for the lookbook shift3

  8. Hey,
    I just received a LookBook Wireless Reader (Shift3). I had never heard of it. I had hinted at a Kindle. Reviews of the NookBook vs Kindle leaned heavily toward the Kindle. Should I even open this LookBook or just return it? Your help will be greatly appreciated.

  9. Balky, slow to load pages. It is tolerable for simple book reading, BUT almost no functionality when trying to use a reference work, such as a Bible or educational publication that requires searches.
    Every time it changes chapters, it forces you to endure a filler page of a quote, which wasn’t so bad to start with, but how many times can you read “Big shots are only little shots who keep shooting” before it gets irritating?
    I do not recommend the Shift3 LookBook except for simple reading, and then only if it is a really cheap buy, I spent $49 and would not buy another one even at that price!
