Good e-reader for the price

by jassie on 7/15/2013

This ereader of all my other ereaders I have tried has been my personal favorite. It has a soft back unlike nook color and kindle with the hard backs. It is really light unlike nook color and kindle. However, it has really short memory. The kobo books themself are really short files, but if you went to put a personal file on your kobo it takes up a lot of space. Totally, their is only 1400 MB right now I have 69 of that being used and that gives me 56 books :( You get way more storage with nook or kindle. I have had the advantage of trying my friends Nook 2 though. the new one that recently came out. It has the soft material covering it like the kobo, so they are improving. Another feature I like is that the kobos quilted design makes them look real pretty =) The kobo touch has a lot of battery life. I have had mine on reading for almost a week or two and have only had to charge it once. Actually it didn't even really need charged because it still had half the battery. Then the kobo touch is of course touch screen, so basically you are looking at a screen like the kindle, except it is touch screen. It is a shame that borders is going out of busines because if they fixed the downs to the kobos they could really compete! Read More
