Yaaawwwwn! So totally NOT exciting!
I'd be lot more excited over a search function and decent foot/end-note handling, collections and other improvements in the reading exerience.
Give me those and I might be way more likely to actually use the device and talk nicely about it on FB and elsewhere!

Can we get endnotes to work on sideloaded content. Please.

I'm active on Facebook and even I don't give a damn. OH well, I'll know not to get my hopes up the next time there's an imminent "exciting announcement".

<YAWN> that "exciting" announcement is pretty much a non-event for me. One of the reasons I enjoy reading is that it is a great way for me to unwind after a day dealing with people in a variety of demanding situations. I really don't feel the need to socially interact with people via FB while reading.

While I don't care much for the social announcement it would be nice to be able to find a book series and then be able to kind-of have a book club of Kobo owners in the Reading Life app.

Someone needs to remove "exciting" from the thread title.

Ahem, may I point out that enhancing the Reading Life functionality will certainly require a firmware update. Just because he didn't mention "insert your favourite quibble here" in his TELE-PRESS CONFERENCE doesn't mean some of those things won't be onboard any such update.

From what I've read, it didn't specify mobile-apps only, it was more of an all-encompassing thing...so you Touch owners may all still feel free to speculate at will I think.

They did however mention that Reading Life was on all their apps and eReaders which, unless I've missed something, it is not. I would like to have it on my Wi-Fi unit, but am left to the imagining of achievements and badges instead.

It may not be exciting to those of us already using a Kobo or one of its apps, but this is huge for Kobo. There's no denying that Facebook has a lot of members and having their app/store integrated with Facebook will probably gain them a lot of new customers.

I would agree with you, but seeing the world like that would require me to temporarily leave my selfish and self-centered comfort zone.
