Unfortunately physical books can take up a lot of room, and I don’t have a good place to have a bookshelf to keep all the books I read. The last couple years EReaders have made it much easier for me to get all the books I want, and to be able to keep them without taking up space. I was thrilled to get the chance to review the Kobo Aura HD. The Kobo is so light and thin. It fits easily in my purse when I travel. It’s easy to hold and read on no matter where I am. The paper-like E Ink display is amazingly clear and easy to read. You can adjust the text size, font, sharpness and weight. It even has a front light so you can read in the dark and not disturb anyone else. This is great for me because I read a lot in bed and my husband has to sleep for work. The light is adjustable too, so you can find the perfect brightness for any situation.
I like how sensitive it is to touch, the pages turn easily and quickly. As light and thin as this is it’s also very sturdy. My 8 year old is also a huge reader and I can let him take this and read and not worry about him damaging it even if he accidentally drops it.
Overall I’m very happy with the Kobo Aura HD. I would recommed it to my family and friends who are looking for an EReader that works great and is a great value!
