  • Summary: The best thing about the Kobo is the on off illumination Of course, it did not help that it was a couple of weeks before, because of website problems, I could access the user instructions. Hopefully things will improve

Overall I feel disappointed

  • Summary: Got this elsewhere and did research others before plunging for this one. It was this one or the Sony one. When researching the Kobo I was told it catered for US-English and proper English and this I feel now I have it is a big let down.
