Excellent First eReader

I love this eReader. The eInk is fantastic, its light and I can take it everywhere! I read so much more now. :) If you are unsure about eReaders this is definitely the place to start.

kobo 6" ereader touch

I actually returned it and bought the Kobo Aura, nicer to hold and larger screen. Also wanted the light that the Aura features.

Light and practical

I love reading it in the metro. I can adjust the font size to make it bigger during a bumpy ride or make the font smaller when I am quietly reading in bed. The battery lasts over a month! It saves the page you are on. For me, it never froze. There is also very nice and cheap accessories for it on ebay: so don't waist your money buying expensive covers at future shop where the choice is very limited. Enjoy!

Great Purchase

The touch KOBO is a great purchase. I've taken this item to the beach, it fits in your coat pocket and the battery lasts forever. Definitely a great purchase. The font adjustment and the quick page turning upgrade makes this a cheap and cheerful item for anyone that loves reading. P.S. used to think hardcovers were the only way to go - not anymore, I don't have to dust rows and rows of books and I don't have to deal with 50lb books anymore. Easy to use as well - for the price of 2 hard covers you can't go wrong!

Great, but the dealbreaker is...

I really like the Kobo and the selection available. However, my first Kobo had a standard-USB cable and this one (the one I bought for my mom)...well, turns out id has a non-standard input jack. So, she goes on vacation, runs out of charge and can charge from her friends computer, right? WRONG. Ebook reader becomes useless for lack of a proper cable. And that, is a deal-breaker and why I will never buy another Kobo until they fix this problem. Oh, and by the way, the Sony eReader has the same design flaw. So, overall, 4/5 but 1/5 for this major design flaw.
