Found 28th Jun 2014
Was looking for a kindle earlier, and came across this. It's currently 79 at WH SMITH and the white version is 79 in asda. The black is 29. They had one in stock in our local (dumbarton) but I click and collected another as one was for my OH. I thought it was a good deal.

Same price in … Same price in Blackwellshttp://bookshop.blackwell.co.uk/jsp/id/NOOK_Simple_Touch/9781400699032?gclid=CLKal5X-nL8CFeyWtAodO1cA6Q



That's the nook rather than the KOBO .

Not great reviews but a fab price for a basic ereader, so heat it is...

£20 @ staples? (oh, nevermind OOS)

Excellent find! Just ordered one for taking on holiday! Saves precious space in my suitcase.......don't have to lug several books now!!!!!

Oos now

oos but heat for your effort!

Hmm, this or a second hand kindle for around £40...

Think this is the one that is £20 at Staples

As a daily user of this Kobo for the past 18+ months, I can confirm it is a great device, does the job well and at this price is an absolute bargain...

Advantage of this or a Nook over a Kindle is that this can use other ebook formats like epub. It's not too hard to convert your Kindle books to epub if you want to read them on this. Equally you can convert epub books to read on a kindle, so in the end it's just whether you want the simplicity of a Kindle and the Amazon book store or if you want to be a bit cheaper and have a reader that is more likely compatible with the free system offered by many local libraries. (and easier if dodgily acquired books...)

I picked up a Kindle Touch in Staples yesterday for £39, try there before you look at used ones.

Neither, get a new Nook Touch instead. Cheaper than a secondhand Kindle and you get a warranty (not that you'll need it) and better build quality and OS than a Kobo.
Mother has a Kobo and I've no end of call outs to it when it's not adding new books from the Kobo store. Even Kobo themselves don't know how to fix the issue (it's happened with 2 Kobo she's had now) and said the only way to get them on is by side loading via Adobe!

My Nook has been faultless

Nope, still going, and I wouldn't write them off just yet. Now separate from Barnes and Noble. Just partnered up branding deal with Samsung, and already partners with Microsoft (who own 18% of Nook)

Unfortunately it was about 140 miles from Edgware in Telford! One of the staff had already bought one and kindly opened it so we could have a look. They said the Kindle offer was also advertised (as well as the Kobe) so I assume its Nationwide if the stores have them.

Well I'm in stoke for uni and that's not too far from telford is it? or is it lol? If it is nationwide then I owe ya a pint as both me and my mum are looking for one and that's an excellent price.
