Kobo E-Reader

I just got my new Kobo e-reader in the mail from Borders and wanted to put up a fast post.

It came in the other day and I’ve been getting used to it. I’ve been reading FREEDOM in print all month, and let me tell you the Kobo is a nice change.

It’s the lightest e-reader I’ve ever held, its the easiest to use, and I love the wifi. There’s also a quilted back on this e-reader that makes it better to grip. And if I set it down on my treadmill while I’m doing cardio in the morning it doesn’t slide around.

So far, I can’t recommend this enough, especially if you’re looking for just a reading device. I’ve thought about the iPad and the Tablet. But I spend most of my days on the computer working and the last thing I want to do when I’m not working is spend more time on the Internet. So for now, it’s the Kobo. And you can’t beat the price. 99.00 plus tax, which also included shipping and handling. The entire amount came out to 105.00. Not bad compared to other e-readers out there.

I’ll start posting in more detail as I get used to ordering and reading. Right now I’ve downloaded a few of the free e-books from Borders and I’m enjoying something free for the first time in a long time 😉

The Virgin Billionaire’s Secret Baby Now on Amazon and The Kobo E-reader

For those who shop on amazon, THE VIRGIN BILLIONAIRE’S SECRET BABY just went up with the rest of my books in the kindle store. It’s also available in paperback as well.

And I just ordered another e-reader. The price was very good and I decided to get it because from what I’ve heard you can take out e-books from the library with this one. It’s the Kobo e-reader, and it’s on sale right now at Borders.com for 99.00 with free shipping. I’ve been watching the same Kobo e-reader in my local CVS store for about a month now. CVS has it retailing for 149.00, which is about the average price. But I didn’t feel like spending that much, especially since e-readers keep going down in price. But when I saw the same e-reader at Borders for 99.00 I decided to spring for it. And if I can take e-books out of the library with this, I’ll save money in the long run. Though I’ve never actually tried to take an e- book out this way, everyone else seems to be talking about it.
I also noticed I have my own list of books being sold at Borders and didn’t know it. http://www.borders.com/online/store/SearchResults?type=1&contrib=Ryan+Field
