Summary: I picked this up on one of the promo sales, and I'm very glad I didn't pay full price. While it has the features I expect from an e-ink reader--long battery life, easy on the eyes--it's missing several features I've gotten used to from other ereaders. I am a sideload-only reader; I do not use the Kobo bookstore at all.
Summary: It is very, very small. But it is great. I have read almost non stop on it during the latest snow day. While it is small, it has changeable font. I am using the largest font and there is no problems. it is very enjoyable to have. I have other ereaders but this one is really, really good. yet is it is a bit slow on the touch screen but I like that. highly recommended.
Great for the book lover who doesn't want to be interrupted while reading

Summary: I LOVE the Kobo Mini! For those of you who, like me, want an ereader that doesn't constant send notifications from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, email, and other forms of social media, then the Kobo Mini is just for you! For me, it makes the reading experience much better. I tap on a book, it opens, I swipe the screen to flip the page, and read until the end of the book! It has a WiFi option, which is great for buying books and updating the firmware.
Summary: I have to say, I've owned three Kobo's, the original one, the Kobo touch and now the Mini. The mini is by far my favorite one out of all of them. Its small, and easy to carry around, grab one of the leather like cases and its like having a large wallet in your pocket. I've been using it since it came out and I got a great deal on.
Summary: It's such a nice little eReader. Fits in any pocket or purse, and works great. You do have to sync it yourself when you've added books. Reading from other Kobo devices or the PC Kobo desktop app all sync well together with it, so you are always on the page where you left off. Love having this little simple reader. Love kindle and nook, but this is a nice addition, too. Not as many Free books as Kindle, but it's wonderful.
Summary: I bought a Kobo Mini when they were on sale for around $40 about a month ago. It was supposed to be for my son and I am just getting around to setting it up. I have an old Kindle and my husband has a Kindle Touch which I sometimes use. I had hoped to be able to download more free books on the Kobo, but it is SUCH a pain compared to the Kindle. If I had paid the full price I would be furious. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PIECE OF JUNK.
