    • So far, so good!

      by Dorothy on 21/03/2018

      This is my third Kobo eReader and so far I am very happy with it. My other two readers both lasted quite a long time, the first one's screen died and the second one - the on/off switch had issues towards the end. I'm very glad to see that Kobo have changed the on/off switch on this model and look forward to it lasting a long time. I use my Kobo every day, so it does get a lot of use, so hopefully this new edition is up to the challenge.My only negative comment would be that the Kobo eReaders do not appear to be available in stores anymore - I could only buy it from an online bookstore. I hope this option at least stays available as I have hundreds of book stored on my reader and would prefer not to have to read them on an ipad or similar - I like my books to be on a separate device.

    • Kobo E-Readers are excellent

      by Robyn on 13/02/2018

      I had a Sony E-Reader which I loved and didn't want to part with it. When Sony stopped making E-Readers, I had to purchase a Kobo. I love the Kobo. It is easy to manage, is easy to read because of the reading light, and you can look up authors on your reader when you want to read a book. Downloading from Kobo is very easy because it is automatic and the long-lasting battery is a real bonus. Great service from Angus and Robertson as the E-Reader was delivered in a week.
