Greatest gadget I have

I love my ereader, I have had it for about 6 months and I find that I am using it all the time. I like that I can get books from the Kobo website as well as get ebooks from my library. I also like that I can put in knitting/crochet patterns for when I go on trips, and I love the fact that I can type up anything that I want add pictures to it save it in pdf format and upload it to my reader.

Sweet ereader

i'm loving my Kobo touch. it's fast, lightweight, small enough to hold in one hand and so easy to read.

Pretty Good

Nice and light, easy to read screen. Only thing, touch response is a little laggy but I'm comparing it to my IPAD2 which is probably not fair. Highly recommend.

Love it!!

I have numerous tablets, including an IPad & android tablets. I love this especially since the batteries last so much longer. Plus, it is so light.

Must buy for all readers out there!

I am a big reader and I can spend hours reading in one sitting with no eye strain because of the E Ink technology. The setting features are handy as well because you can choose from a handful of font types and can adjust your font size. You are only able to purchase books from Kobo but they have a fairly large selection of free books (mostly classics), in fact I have only actually purchased one book and I've had the reader for 6 months. The only complaint that I would have is that I would not use this reader to view magazines due to the fact that there is no colour but there's a new Kobo for that. The Reading Life is very enjoyable - there are many awards to unlock and it's pretty inspiring when you get the non-invasive pop-up that you've reached a new one. If you are buying an E-reader for the sole purpose of reading this is a great option.
