Kobo eReaders: Which is the Best Option for You?

Like most eReader manufacturers, Kobo offers a variety of different devices in various price ranges. Choosing between the Kobo eReaders really depends on how you plan to use it and how much you’re willing to spend. You can go as simple as the KoboMini or as extravagant as the KoboArc. Check out the features of each one and decide which is best for you.

Different types of Kobo eReaders

  • KoboMini– this is the smallest and least expensive of the Kobo eReaders. Despite its size, it’s still loaded with all the features that make Kobo what it is, including the no-glare Pearl E Ink touchscreen. While the screen is only 5-inches, the KoboMini is lightweight and highly portable. It’s perfect for stashing in your purse and catching up on your reading while waiting in line at the grocery store! The Mini retails for $79.99
  • KoboTouch– The Touch just got an update, and now stores up to a whopping 30,000 books. It also has the esteemed status of being the first eReader to be available in multiple languages. The Touch offers a fun feature for avid readers called Reading Life. You can earn awards and share your reading persona with friends across various social media networks. The screen is 6-inches, making it a little bigger than the Mini. With a price tag starting at $99.99, it’s a great option if you want something a little more robust than the Mini but still want to keep it under $100.
  • KoboGlo– If you do a lot of reading at night when everyone else is in bed, and would like an option that doesn’t require turning on every light in the house, the KoboGlo is perfect. It illuminates the page from the inside and directs light back to the page with its ComfortLight technology, without casting a blinding light on your face. Of all the Kobo eReaders, this one would be perfect to keep in the house for entertaining yourself during power outages! The KoboGlo retails for $129.99
  • KoboArc– If you want a full-color, tablet-like experience from your eReader, the KoboArc offers that. With a high-resolution and over 16 million colors, you’ll experience images in a way that is unsurpassed by most¬† other eReaders. The coolest feature of KoboArc, though, is Tapestries, a program that learns your personality and recommends books that you’ll actually want to read. While many recommendation programs are based on what others like, Tapestry is completely unique to you. The KoboArc retails for $199.99
