I'm curious - all those people out there who DO purchase books on their kobo - how do you choose what to buy? Unless I'm buying say the 15th book by my favourite author I spend quite a bit of time reading reviews and even if I know I want a book I still compare prices (on several different sites) before my purchase. You can't do that on the Kobo.
When I borrow from the library however I just click on anything that looks interesting. If I don't like it then I just return it the next day. My success rate is above 50% and I have found some interesting new authors but I can't afford to shop like that!!
