Greetings from Ontario, Canada (eh!)
Bought my first e-reader the other day and have really enjoyed it. I bought a kobo and (so far) have had no real issues.
I'm still looking at an iPad for use with graphic novels and more interactive content but for the money the kobo is a great buy and meets my needs quite well.
My reading interests are quite varied. I'll read almost anything. Authors I am particularly fond of are: Bryce Courtenay, W.E.B. Griffin, Brad Thor, Nelson Demille, Anthony Beevor, Tim Dorsey, Carl Hiaasen and Lee Child.
My ereader isn't meant to replace my collection of books but rather to augment it.
