Question How to go from buying to reading on a Kobo?

I've read numerous ebooks on PDAs, phones and other ereaders, but not on a Kobo. The new mini looks appealing to me due to its pocketable size.

What I would like to know is how much work does it take to go from buying an ebook to actually reading it? My wife has a Kindle Fire and she just hooks up to our home wifi, buys the book, click, and it's there to read in a few seconds. What does it take on a Kobo?

I have heard that on some readers you have to install another program on your computer, Adobe, I think, and go through it. You may have to install and use Calibre, also. On my older Windows phone a few years back, to read books from eReader.com, I needed to enter my name exactly as it was on my credit card and my credit card number to get the book. It's really a small thing to have to do this, but I'd just as soon avoid it.
