neat and fast


Light, neat, fast and versatile. However, my old one had the on/of button on the top edge. This one has it on the back which means you have to take it out of the cover to switch on and off. Whose bright idea was that?

wanted to able to download library books

Relatively happy


A few minor issues with screen refresh and zoom, but overall happy. For reading books and technical documents it's sufficient, but when reading graphic intensive library books such as Map of the Discworld it's very poor. Pocket works well enough but...

Great little e-reader


Great little e-reader' bought to replace aging Nook. Love being able to download library books (via laptop) and the backlight is a must have. Small enough to hold in one hand, big choice of fonts and sizes. Happy with Kobo bookstore, and easy to...
