Kobo makes a great quality e Reader.
My Thoughts about the Kobo Aura H20 e-Reader:
Everyone is all about the newest and greatest tablets. Tablets allow you to go online, play games, and you can use a reading app. You can tell from my numerous book reviews I’m an avid reader. Reading on a tablet is just like using a computer for long periods of time as they are both have a back light. When I’m reading for long periods of time I prefer an e-ink eReader.
E-ink allows you to read without the eye strain. E-ink has a grayscale screen that helps to prevent eye strain and related headaches when you are reading for long periods of time. Another benefit to e-ink is that you can use it in direct sunlight. That makes it ideal at the pool or beach in the summertime. I love the built in light feature. I can turn on and off the screen to be able to read in the dim or dark light. This is great when I want to read at night but my husband is asleep.
You can also increase the font size to make it easier to read without strain. What I love the most about this e-Reader is that is supports all of the e-book formats. I don’t have to choose between .mobi, .epub, or .pdf. There is a way to convert e-books to the correct format but it’s so nice not having to mess with that. I was using a kindle before this kobo and I loved the fact I didn’t have to convert my .mobi books. The only thing is you can not read books you buy on Amazon to the Kobo.
The device is light weight at only 233 grams. It’s great for the arthritis in my hands, I can read for hours with no pain. I can eve use it one handed. The screen is touch screen to turn the page which is an added bonus.
The Kobo Aura H20 would make a great gift for an avid reader that gets eye strain easily, or that would love to take their books with them everywhere.
