If the recommended list was there when we were purchasing the choice would have been different. As it is I am refusing to buy books from them and our next ereader will not be a Kobo of any type. It's too bad really as we liked our units, payed full price for one without advertising, and now have it forced on us. So I would not recomend the vox or touch. Books and readers can be easily bought in the U.S. without this annoying feature.
Perhaps if users keep complaining to Kobo about this recommended list being shoved in our faces, they'll make it an option. A year or two ago Rogers Cable added a "feature" to their digital boxes where when you pressed the "guide" button, it took you first to their promotional channel. The uproar was so huge, they relented and let users skip this.
