Kobo Touch e-Reader

Winter reading list adding up? Looking for a compact way to take your favourite books to a warm winter getaway or ski adventure? Either way, London Drugs and Vancouverscape have got you covered this month.

Kobo readers

London Drugs has provided me with a Kobo Touch e-Reader in silver to give away to a lucky reader this holiday season. Cozy up near the fireplace with your favourite bevvy and enjoy some downtime, or fill someone’s stocking with some gadget love.

Kobo Touch has a highly-responsive touchscreen with the ability to zoom in up to 200% as well as choose from several font styles and sizes, line spacing, margins and page justification, fully customizing your reading experience.

A no-glare 6” Pearl E Ink touchscreen replicates a print-on-paper reading experience as the E Ink consists of tiny particles of ink mixed in with each pixel on the screen, giving a sharp, crisp appearance on-screen. This also helps to eliminate glare – even in bright sunlight.

Weighing in at just 185 grams, Kobo Touch fits perfectly in your hand for comfortable reading. Its soft, quilted back makes the e-reader super comfortable to hold. The Touch comes in lilac, silver, pearl, blue, and black.

Built-in WiFi will let you connect to your Kobo account whenever you’re near a WiFi hotspot. You can connect, sync, and buy eBooks right from the Kobo! And if you leave the Kobo at home or work by accident, you can easily sync your library with an iPhone, iPad, Android, and desktop to gain access to your books through a free eReading app for those devices.

In addition, support your local public library by borrowing library eBooks for the Kobo. The Touch comes installed with 2 GB of internal memory (1 GB configured for 1,000 eBooks), however it’s expandable up to 32 GB with a Micro SD card, a great option for having an entire library of 30,000 books travel with you on your next big adventure.

Depending on use, the Kobo Touch battery lasts up to one month on a single charge.

Friday the 13th (at 5 pm) is our draw date, but it won’t be unlucky for one of you! To enter, like both Vancouverscape and London Drugs on Facebook, or RT the following:
