2014-2015: Best tablet specs for ebook reading

<< < (12/13) > >>

Does anyone know where I can download free legal Public Domain ebooks in text form, working through TOR Vidalia, and without joining or registering?
For instance, Project Gutenberg has a ton of books, but won't let you access or download them through a proxie, but only in direct open unencrypted mode, which is vulnerable to cyberstalkers.
Other web sites want you to register and log in.
There are LibreVox recordings on YouTube, but sometimes the speech quality is indistinct and a little difficult to understand, and there are necessarily no subtitles.
Any text format would be fine, as I intend to play them back using my text to speech player anyway, which is easier on my eyes, and would also automatically give me built-in subtitles to be sure what is being spoken.

Have tried myself but I wonder whether any of the mirror sites for Project Gutenberg might work better:

From the way that they're marketing it, and the 'interview' process and the reasoning behind that, I don't know if it will get into the hands of someone that would do that.

FWIW, noticed mention of getting the SONY device rooted:

Sounds expensive and risky :)

This looks like it might be what Mouser is looking for to read pdf documents full size: a 13.3 Android tablet with full 1080p display and 16GB memory for $199.  Read the review by Charles Babcock dated October 27 2015 for a good evaluation of the tablet's strengths and weaknesses - note that the 16GB version is now going for what he paid for 8GB.

That looks nice. bookmarking.
