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 love my Kobo mini because of its small size and its long battery life which decreases quickly with wi-fi use. True, it does not have a backlight but I bought it for using at the pool over the summer. My original ereader still works quite well and is in color but its battery life is only two hours. So, the mini does what I need it to do. The speed is a little slow and the browser leaves much to be desired.
Summary: Just like every other ereader. Only it's a kobo, which means a better user interface. And a mini, which means the most portable ereader. But this is a touch ereader, make sure you want it instead of non-touch version. A touch ereader can make you accidentally switch pages.
Summary: I bought this at Best Buy In Spring Hill, FL, was the last one they had. I wanted a E-Reader that wasn't full of advertising and one that I could use to borrow books from TBLC (Tampa Bay Library Consortium) and this little E-Reader does the trick. I love this reader, I set it up in just a few minutes and was reading my first book in about an hour. I keep three books in it most of the time. I am a avid reader and the KOBO mini suits me well.
Pros: Small, easy reading, lightweight
Cons: I have not found anything not so great with this reader.
