Needs too many charges

Bonnie Thompson, Amazon

  • Summary: I have a nook and an iPad but i like to read at the pool. Neither of these allow me to do this in the sunshine so a friend at the pool recommended the kobo reader. Although very affordable I THOUGHT it was touch screen and the small button to change screens or to turn pages is an annoyance and each day I try to use it after using for less than two hours it requires my computer to charge it back so Ivan read again. The user manual says battery life is ten hours.

A good reader that falls short

  • Summary: The Good: I really like the size and thickness of this reader..

Low end ereader

Ari C. Finkelman "finkelmana", Amazon

  • Summary: I got the Kobo e-reader at half price while Border's was going out of business. It doesnt have a lot of frills, but it works. The battery life doesnt last nearly as long as they claim, it last about a week without use before it needs to be charged. The 10,000 page turns is a fabrication, but it still lasts for a long time. I got the Kobo over the Kindle because it supports the open e-book format, EPUB. However, it seems to struggle with some EPUB books.
