Needs Fixing

I have contacted Kobo, and I am sure this issue will be fixed but... when readers stop reading a book the next time you want to read it you have to download it. This means that the app is pretty useless once you leave home.

Not bad

Would love the original themes back. The new ones aren't as nice. The option for the older ones instead would be very nice please.

What happened to my books?

Haven't read on kobo for a while and when I tried I was informed I had none!
Can't remember my password but there seems to be no option for recovering it. Are my books lost?
