Last year for the holidays I received an eReader as a gift. My friend knew that I love to read, so she decided to buy one for me. Being one who loves to read and holding a paper book in my hands it did take a while to get used to it, but I tried.
After a couple of months of trying to get comfortable with this eReader, I came to the conclusion that I still enjoyed reading from a book. Why? Well the screen wasn’t bright or clear, it would fade sometimes, and the worst the screen would get stuck, it was not good at all. I finally decided to get it to my nephew so he can play with it. It was back to the books for me, so I thought.
One of my co-workers knew what happened and suggested that I try a Kobo. I told him that my last experience with an eReader did not work out too well, but he insisted that a Kobo is different because it caters to book lovers, people who love and enjoy reading. As an added incentive he gave me a Kobo coupon code to use when I was ready to buy.
I did some research online and found out that Kobo is a Canadian company. The variety of models that they have is amazing. I also liked the fact that Kobo, unlike other eReaders, has the ability to expand up to 32 GB, meaning that you can carry up to 30,000 books. Kobo really cares that the reader enjoys his/her reading experience, which is why they have different models to suit everyone’s needs.
I don’t want to bore you with too much technical information which you can get from their website, but what I can tell you is that their screens are amazing, clear and vibrant. It’s like reading a newspaper or a book. You feel like you can touch the page, it is that clear.
After much research I decided on the Kobo Aura H2O model. The reason being this model is sand proof and water proof, how lucky am I? Since I love going to the beach and hanging out by the pool this model is perfect for me. I couldn’t protect my own books this way. I was able to find a Kobo best price sale that was going on, so I got a great price for this model. I can hardly wait to receive it.
An update, I have been using my Kobo for 2 weeks now and I am loving it. I read my books on my way to work, during lunch and in bed before I go to sleep. It was a great purchase for me. I would recommend a Kobo to anyone. Start by going online searching for Kobo discount codes which you can use to save yourself some money. Once you have that go and get yourself a Kobo and start reading!
