Syncing between two Kobos

I am a really happy owner of a Kobo Mini. In the evenings though I sometimes appreciated "having light"

Now to my question:
if I bought a Kobo Glo and used the same Kobo account, would/will I be able to "sync" between my Mini and my Glo vice-versa?
E.g.
the day through I am reading book X on my Mini up till page 123, then sync and shut it down.
At home I launch my Glo, snyc.
Will I then be able to open book X and be sent directly to page 123?

The quick and accurate answer to your question is yes. I say this because I have a Arc & Mini and the syncing works just fine.

Note: You can only sync books bought from Kobo, not external files (like pdf's, epub's etc).

Those won't work. Syncing is done via Kobo's servers, and those servers don't have any info on your sideloaded books... even the ones turned into kepub.epubs.
