books disappearing

I use calibre and download books, then send them to my kobo - a day later or two I turn on the kobo to read the book and Kobo cannot find all the books in memory - this is a daily issue - so I have to import the books to my kobo again
and again different books disappear and have to be imported again - obviously we are not amused

Try an alternative reader like Aldiko or Cool Reader and browse to where you think the books are been saved on your Kobo.

I'd bet that the internal microSD card is failing. I've had similar symptoms on other Android devices that were fixed by replacing the memory card. I'm assuming that your device is out of warranty, but if you're willing to brave opening the back and booting a computer to Linux, you can copy the contents of your old card onto a new one and replace it. There's a wealth of information in this thread.
