I also broke by screen. Kobo was in my pocket and I hit the corner of a desk in the bookstore from which I purchased the Kobo. The protective cover does not break, it is the LCD behind the protective screen. I contacted Kobo who said they could repair the Kobo, but it would likely cost over $100. Perhaps it would cost as much as the Kobo. I similarly broke a Sony laptop LCD screen once and was able to replace the screen myself by purchasing a new LCD for it, and it was relatively inexpensive. This Kobo screen seems to be the price of the Kobo, unless I can find a source for the LCD.
