Do you know if there is a free/libre alternative to the Kindle?
Many thanks

Some old ebook readers support http://openinkpot.org/, I don't know how
free it is, nor how free a system running on them could be.

If you aren't looking for e-paper, then you can use nearly any GNU/Linux
or Replicant device.

I've got a Nook Simple Touch, and if all you are interested in is an ebook reader that you can use to read non-drm ebooks then just turn the wifi off and keep it off. Don't upgrade the firmware. It's still running nonfree software, but you've basically turned it into an appliance like a microwave. It does one thing, you know what it does and how to deal with it, and since you aren't upgrading the firmware the features won't change.

Remember the moral part of software development is on the developers, not the users. The users are the victims of non-free software, but it's not immoral to use it. But it's dangerous.
