More Books

Kindle Editions

 I collect books, and this can get a little costly.
Getting a Kobo eReader saved me money and space.
However, sometimes I find the selection a bit limited.

Like most people today, when I look for a book the first place, I go to, is the Amazon website.
I read some of the ratings and if available I "Look Inside."
This morning I had a nice surprise, we can read Kindle editions on a PC.
Since I just bought my Kobo eReader, I'm not ready for a Kindle yet.

The best part, is that I can now get books for less.
Kindle edition prices are lower and there are no shipping charges.
And I don't have to buy new bookshelves.


  1. Hi Joanne
    I got a Kobo last April and I wish I had gotten a Kindle. I got the Kobo because you are supposed to be able to borrow books from the Public Library (in Toronto) and I can't get it to work. My husband has a Smartphone and downloads books to his phone and we can't share them. I think I might wait a bit and go for the Kindle Fire. So much more useful. I read at a phenomenal rate so buying a lot of books is too costly for me.
    I do reread favourites though, do you?


  2. Hi Joan, I read a lot too. I bought my Kobo just before they introduced Kobo Vox. I thought of getting a Kindle, but now I think I prefer to wait until I can get a tablet. They cost more, but you can use it for so many other things.
    Other than the Kindle for desktop, I also installed a Zinio reader.
    It's so much better for reading magazines.
    When I get the tablet, all the apps for these reading devices are going on it.
    It cuts down on the cost of books and the need for more bookshelves.


Thank you for letting me know what you think.
