Great Overview

I have a Kobo Aura, and I really love it. I also have a 2nd gen Kindle, which is a very nice device, but the Kobo definitely beats it.

This was an excellent look at an excellent product. I've owned mine for a while now, yet you still taught me a few new tricks. Great job!

Kobo anagrams to Book

Thanks for leaving your comment, lostnbronx. Glad to hear you enjoyed the episode. One thing I neglected to mention and I might not even have realized when I recorded the episode is that the name of the device is an anagram of the word "book." I'm definitely loving my Kobo. I should probably load it up with your latest book haha!
