Perhaps it would cost as much as the Kobo. I similarly broke a Sony laptop LCD screen once and was able to replace the screen myself by purchasing a new LCD for it, and it was relatively inexpensive. This Kobo screen seems to be the price of the Kobo, unless I can find a source for the LCD.
It's not an LCD, it's an eInk display. I doubt you'll be able to repair the Kobo for much less than the actual reader, the display is the most important part of the whole unit in an eReader.
