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 😉
