Hi from Rocky Mountain House

Hi, found this site while researching e-readers! Looks like a great place. Still in process of trying to decide to get a Kindle or a Kobo. I want one so so bad, but trying to have some patience and make sure I get what I really want!

Hello AnnS, and welcome to the MR community!

I wish you luck in your decision making process. If it helps you feel any better, it took me more than 3 years to finally decide which reader to buy! These forums were a fantastic resource during that time.

Ann: If you're thinking of getting a Kobo, wait until after July 22. I wrote the Kobo people yesterday, and their reply told me that any reader I order AFTER that date should have the new firmware update on it.

I have a Kindle 2, which I love, love, LOVE -- but I'm thinking of buying a Kobo as a 2nd e-reader for library downloads, and for a few items that I can't get through Amazon, but which I see ARE available at the Kobo store.

In general, Amazon prices are lower ...but as a Canadian, there are a few books you won't have access to. Some kind of international publishing regulations. An example of this would be the Steig Larsson books. These you can get through Kobo.

My reservation about the Kobo is that it is said to be very slow. I'm used to my Kindle now, and I think I might get impatient with longer booting time, and slower page turns.

Good to have your new company, Ann. Before making a choice, do be sure to study the *Which One Should I Buy?* forum here. When it comes to reading devices, it's very much a matter of horses for courses. Good luck and best wishes. Neil

Hi AnnS,
I also found MR while researching for an eReader. You'll find lots of resources and friendly advice here if you care to look. Good luck!
