Are you like me, and love opening a new book? It’s hard to describe the feeling I have when I open a new book. It’s a feeling of happiness and contentment that’s for sure. It’s also a sense of relaxation; to free you mind and let your thoughts be filled by a great story.
I’ve recently had the privilege of trying the Kobo Glo HD. I have to tell you, I had my doubts at first, but after downloading two of my favourite books on the Kobo Glo HD, and opening one of them, I felt the same way I do when I turn the first page of a brand new book.
I love to read, but with a full time job, two kids, a family life and a blog, finding time to read is not always easy. Well, I’ve read more since I have my Kobo Glo HD (7 days), then I did in the last 4 months. Why? Because it’s portable and so convenient. It’s small, lighter then a hard cover book, and it fits almost anywhere. It fit perfectly in my cross body bag, so I was able to bring it with me everywhere and catch up on my reading. While waiting in line at the store, while waiting for my kids to get off the bus, while waiting at the doctor’s office, chiropractor and hairdresser. I even brought it to work, so I could finish my chapter during lunch.
What’s even more wonderful about Kobo is that you can download the Kobo app on your phone or tablet. So if you forget or choose not to bring your Kobo Glo HD, you can still access your library and catch up on your reading with your cell phone or tablet. How convenient is that? Try it now! Download the app for free on any of your device. Let me know how you like it. I love it! There are over 4 million books available, so you always have a great selection of books at your fingertips.
You can download the Kobo app at https://www.kobo.com/apps . Available on IOS, Android, Blackberry 10, Windows 8 or Windows 8 Phone or Desktop Computer.
The other day, I was outside sunbathing while the kids were swimming, and I was actually able to read with my Kobo Glo HD, in the sunlight. I’ve tried several times to use my ipad in the same circumstances, and it’s practically impossible to see or read the screen. I had no problem reading my Food Photography & Lighting book on the Kobo Glo HD. In fact, it’s the clearest reader in sunlight or complete darkness.
As much as I love books, I’m a now a proud Kobo user. My mom loves to read, and I will introduce her to the Kobo app and the Kobo Glo HD. Kobo Glo HD owners can even benefit from an exclusive free concierge service for tips on getting started, eBook recommendations, great deals and more. This service is exclusive to Kobo Glo HD owners and is available from 9Am to 9PM local times, 7 days a week.

I can’t think of anything better than reading poolside! So glad you are enjoying your new Kobo Glo HD

I’m loving it!

I don’t read, but my husband does and I think this is a lot nicer that the simple Kindle he has. I should get hime one of these 🙂
Love my Kobo! I take it everywhere! Enjoy!
I tried reading outside on my iPad, and you’re right – it is impossible. A good e-reader like this is the obvious solution.

i am not familiar with Kobo. It sounds like it would be a great resource in our homeschooling.
Mama Banana says
I LOVE that you can clearly see it in sunlight. Our Ipads are tough to see! What a great item for the beach and definitely an amazing gift for Grandma! I have to look this brand up!
I love to read. Finding time for it has always been the issue. Now problem solved!
I will always probably prefer paperbacks but do have the free kindle on my desktop–uh-if you have ever been to my blog you know I read a lot. If I were to get a take along reader it would have to be large so that I could make the print large-my eyes are not what they used to be.
Liz Mays says
I really like having an e-reader for traveling so I don’t have to worry about bending the cover or pages of a book (which I always seem to do accidentally).
I do love opening a new book. There is the promise of reading a wonderful new story and following it through until the end.

This is only my second time seeing one of these things, but I think I’d like it just as much as I like my Kindle!

I’m still a holdout for a real book with pages to turn. My husband uses his reader at work all the time, but I haven’t been able to get into it.
Caroline Barnes says
I understand, I did love a real book to, but I do think the Kobo Glo HD is a lot more convenient then a real book. I’ve read a lot more since I have it then I would a real book.
