I gave myself a present recently - a new Kobo eReader. It's sleek, small and, most importantly, affordable. At $150, this is the most inexpensive ereader currently on the market. But at $150, it has limitations (generally speaking, you get what you pay for). I might have preferred a Sony, I think, only because one can turn pages with that device by touch. With the Kobo you have to press a button. A five-way button so one needs to be careful that one doesn't press it in the wrong direction (well, not that big of a deal, you just have to press to go back). So, it's not as fancy as the others out there, actually kind of primitive really, and I'm guessing that in five or so years, these particular Kobos won't be manufactured anymore. But, for the time being it serves to stave off my craving for an iPad! Other features it has:It will tell you what page you are on in a chapter, but not what page you are on in the book;
- It will save your page;
- It has currently reading books in a 'subfolder';
- It will hold up to 1000 books;
- You can buy a memory chip to hold more books;
- It comes with two fonts;
- You can change font-size;
- Comes loaded with 100 classics (well they're free via Gutenberg.com anyway, but at least I don't have to do the work of loading them).
Do you have an e-reader? If not, are you considering getting one? If you do have one, how do you like it?
