Good evening folks
Recieved my Glo two days ago from Collins Books. I've had it on order since October.
Looooovit.
Using Linux via wine to run Kobo Desktop. Also have ADE running through wine and Calibre with all my books stored on bookshelves........ over 1000 I have been collecting for some time. Some I have purchased but most come from the 'free' out of copywrite sites.
Used to read ebooks on my smartphone until the Glo. Chalk and cheese.
If anyone has any question about using your Kobo in linux post me.
Happy reading
Al

Got mine about a week ago from Officeworks, Brisbane CBD. $159, any colour you want as long as it's black. I hadn't found this forum at that stage, and it looked like stock was pretty thin on the ground, so I grabbed it.

I also got the sleep cover; marked as about $23.99 but actually was supposed to be about $45.99. They gave it to me at the $23.99 price. I don't know if they've fixed the display yet; if not, you might be able to get a little discount on the cover.

Very first impressions are good, though I see what people mean when they say that handling of PDFs is poor. I'm starting on a free ebook, "Dracula". The text appears to be scanned, and doesn't seem to be as crisp as real text. Page turning is ridiculous, and I have to centre the page after every laborious turn. I wonder if Calibre can convert it to real epub format, using OCR. I'm a total noob at this; I'm sure you can tell.

Hi ya Multiplication, glad to see you here on Mobile Read

Try this version of Dracula - it's from the MR library and therefore will have been wonderfully formatted:
