Personally I prefer the quotes. My only problem is the screen times out before I've finished reading some of the longer quotes.

I agree that the quotes can get old. At the moment, I prefer the book cover - I kind of like that if you pull out your Vox on the bus (or in my case, ferry) someone might be able to peek over before you unlock to see what you are reading. That is the saddest thing about eReaders in my opinion - you lose the ability to find new reads or connect with others reading what you've read in public.

If it takes me too long to read any specific book or if I read a book with an unbecoming cover, I might switch back to quotes.

Personally I do prefer the covers; If there was one change, I'd like to be able to see it full screen as the background wallpaper like you do with the quilt, or at least have an option to do so if one wanted.

You're right - different type of public though. And so far, Pulse is pretty dead... (can't wait for it to pick up!)

What's this "next release" referring to? The Kobo software or the Android OS version?

Next firmware update, I'll bet. Which hopefully updates the Kobo app a bit too.

Speaking of which, turning off and on the 'covers' option finally got the cover to show up.
