An eReader is a lot like having both a library and a bookstore in your pocket. You can take all the books you’ve downloaded to the device with you, and then shop for more at your convenience via the Kobo Store, which has plenty to choose from. Some public libraries also let you take out e-books since they use the ePub format eReaders support. So, with all this in mind, which eReader is the right one for you?

If you’ve ever considered picking up an e-Reader, or your existing reader is starting to show its age, you really owe it to yourself to take a look at the Kobo Aura.

With summer in full swing, it’s the perfect time of year to take a look at eReaders and what they can offer you. Sure a lot of people enjoy reading on the usual tablets most of the time. When it's summer, however, those tablets can seem like more of a disadvantage than an advantage as you squint to read LCD screens while sitting under the hot sun, or struggle to keep them recharged while you’re on the go doing summer activities. eReaders are ideal for the summertime! They help you enjoy all the benefits of physical books, and of tablets, together. Whether you are camping or relaxing by the pool, an eReader can help you read all your eBooks on your terms this summer.
