I have a problem: I am addicted to eReaders. I have a kindle, a tablet, a kobo, and an off-brand tablet that my mom reviewed for a company one time. I've tried a Nook and an iPad for reading. But of them all, I love my kobo the most. It's true, sometimes the books on Kobo are more expensive than if I bought them on my tablet, and there have been a few books that were unavailable for Kobo. However, the pros definitely outweigh the cons. My kobo is durable, yet light-weight. A few eReaders I have tried have been pretty fragile. Not so with my kobo. It also uses the paperwhite technology, which is great for someone with migraines, like me! My kobo is small and light enough to fit into my grip easily or fit into my purse, but it's large enough to read easily- and if it's not, I can change the text size. I also like the badges and awards you can get for reading. It just adds a little extra incentive to an already fun activity. Also, the kobo is generally cheaper or at least the same price as similar eReaders.
