I don't like my Kobo, I love it. I've only had it a week and don't know how I managed without it. The reason I bought it was because of its simplicity and lack of bells and whistles. It's easy on the eyes, there's no way I could have read for four hours the other night (trying to finish a book) using an lcd screen.
Also I am an Aussie who loves SciFi and it's really hard to get hold of here. Thanks to a link here I've found Baen Books, and will be spending a lot of money there when I have finished their freebies.
So thankyou Kobo and MobileRead
