My Kobo entered my life 2 Xmas ago. I'm a avid reader. I love buying books, the feel of books, the smell of classic old books. I just didn't think Kobo was a good fit for me. How would I pass down all my classics one day? So I didn't even finish one book in the year I got my Kobo. Fast forward to today, I'm on my Kobo every night. Ijust picked up one day and really accustomed myself to all the features. The battery life is AMAZING. I was actually shocked over it. I read every night for approx 1 Hr and usually charge it once a month or so, not even because its dead, but getting there. Great compact size, easy to bring on all my vacations. I love my Kobo Pink leather case as well. So glad my mom bought me this Kobo and I'm glad I gave a E-Reader a chance. I will always buy classic books still, but great product. ...read more

Love this basic e-reader. I love that it uses e-ink and it feels like I'm reading a piece of paper vs an led screen. It's an affordable price point and the books you read on here don't need to be Nook-only compatible files. You can also read PDF files and standard e-book formats. You can even check out books from the library. If you're looking for something lightweight and basic, with the feeling of reading a book, I would recommend this e-reader for what it is. ...read more

With e-readers becoming more popular over the years and many different types to choose, even within the kindle range you might be a bit confused or if you've not yet gone down the e-reader route you might just not see the point of a small chunk of plastic as it might not just have the same feel or smell as a paper read.

Before you dismiss the kindle in favour of a traditional paperback though I'd ask you to consider the benefits of the kindle.

The kindle itself is lightweight and thinner than a pencil, making it perfect for those who find they cannot hold a hardback book or even a paperback novel.

It is a godsend for students with those thick heavy course books, because you can download those right onto the kindle making them extremely portable.

And you can read for hours and the battery life is up to one month per charge!

It is easy to navigate the pages using either hand. Unlike traditional books, the kindles font can be enlarged making it a fantastic tool for those who's eyesight cannot manage the standard text in a novel.

You don't need to remember your page or have a traditional bookmark to insert into a page only to have it fall out on you and you fumble around forever trying to recall where you were last. The kindle automatically saves where you were reading, even if you decide to read more than one book at a time, it will remember every one and when you go back to it with the easy to use menu, it will bring you effortlessly back to the page where you left off.

You can make notes on it and it holds up to 1,400 books! That is a lot of library!!

You can also borrow books from the amazon library, there are many FREE BOOKS to be had and kindle format books tend to be cheaper too.

There are a lot of benefits from owning a kindle.

I love mine ...read more
