Kobo eBookstore vs. Borders eBookstore
This is going to sound like a silly question; I apologize in advance.
I've had my Kobo for more than six months now, and enjoy the heck out of it. I love that it just e-reads. I can stay focused on a book much longer if the device also doesn't check my email. I mostly use Calibre or Digital Editions to sync books.
My question is: When I click "shop" on my wifi Kobo, am I connecting to the Kobo bookstore, or am I connecting to the Borders bookstore? I purchased my Kobo at Borders if that matters.
I ask because before I went away on a recent vacation, I navigated to Kobo's online bookstore on my desktop computer and purchased a few books. When I got to my hotel, I hooked the Kobo up to the wifi, expecting to go to the shop, sync, and have them arrive on my Kobo. But they weren't anywhere to be found! And If I navigated to the specific book in the shop, it wanted me to purchase it again.
I've since gotten the books to sync from my home computer using Digital Editions when I returned home, but it was frustrating having to read the books on the Kobo Android app (on a tiny screen) and not my Kobo on vacation.
Thanks for any insight!

they are both separate entities. if you sync with the kobo desktop your kobo gets 'married' to that store, same if you sync with the borders desktop your kobo gets 'married' to borders.
the easiest way is what you did later and downloaded with ade then added via ade or calibre to the kobo.
but the kobo can only work with one desktop application at a time.
