Read more books this year than ever because of Kobo


I was going on a cruise at the beginning of the year and one of my goals was to read some books. Rather than bring hard copies (of which I have hundreds), I got Kobo and bought a few e-books. Because of the ease of purchasing a book and getting it immediately and also being able to read without the light on, I have read over 30 books this year! This is more than I’ve ever read even though I love to read. Kobo has restored my love of reading by making it easier.
Some books, like children’s picture books will always require a hands on experience but for novels, Kobo is a winner.
The only improvement I would like to see would be a way to purchase from within the app instead of having to go to the website but it’s not a big issue.



I love reading but struggle to read actual books in my limited spare time and with noisy kids! 😂 I’m in a car 2 hours a day and Kobo has given me back that joy of hearing great stories while I drive. I’m finding books to popular collections with Kobo that I couldn’t find on bigger audiobook stores. 👀
Kobo team: Thank you so much!
I’d really like to see Apple CarPlay connectivity added. It’s troublesome to remember to start the book and pause it on my phone before connecting to the car via USB. Play/pause/rewind controls don’t appear on the car screen without doing this first.



What would I do without you? After working hard all day there is NOTHING better than crawling into bed with my trusty ipad and Kobo! Then again during the summer break it’s just as good enjoying a refreshing cool breeze on the back verandah with a glass of wine reading yet another series from a newly discovered author. Kobo seems to know me well and offers great suggestions when I regretfully finish a novel and within an instant it’s within swiping distance. I can’t imagine life without Kobo! Definitely my favorite app!
