The kobo is a good ereader, not so fancy as the new updates but it serves its purposes nonetheless. I have tons of books saved and the reading features are good too. It's pretty easy to use, the battery lasts a while, and the size is perfect to slip into my smallest purses. The Kobo store has a wide selection of ebooks and they download fast to my ereader. The ebooks are a bit pricey, but I guess that is a tale for another day. Overall, I'm quite satisfied with this ereader, glad I own one. Design Not as sleek as others but it's not that bad.
