Free Kindle books here https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/free-books-for-kindle-3038653#comment-35078167
You read a lot of them I take it from that comment ?
Just look at WH Smith's, it's shelves stacked with mummy porn and to a lesser extent crime thrillers. It's what sells I guess. Perhaps middle aged women read the most. I've seen plenty of good Kindle deals though, and bought lots recently. Lots of Fantasy deals, some sci fi, business and self improvement books. And it's not like Smith's where it's a struggle to find what you want.
Kindle's deals seem to be 90% crime and romance tripe 10% History (which is my thing) and war books (some are VERY good, most aren't) Crime and romance must be their subjects they make their bucks from
Kindle monthly deals here, mainly 99p i think ! https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/kindle-monthly-deals-many-different-tiltles-genre-3038813
One day robots that want to play God will pick up this book and get really confused.
Not in the UK - unless they've recently updated the policy. You can in the US/on Amazon.com if you have 1-click ordering switched on (I don't because they kept trying to charge me postage on items that were eligible for free delivery).
Can you gift kindle books?
Love the radio show and a good price, heat
Great radio show, will give his a try. Thanks.
Yes. Good point. Most but not all of my Nook purchases moved to Sainsburies but I don’t think any moved to Kobo but then I’d already read them. I consider it like most of my paper book purchases. Once I read a paper book it usually goes to a charity shop so it’s ‘lost’ to me anyway.
To gavin1. I agree what you wrote about ebooks from Kobo, Nook, etc besides Amazon. What I wrote was trying to challenge any assumptions people make when buying ebooks. Its seems to me when 'buying' (leasing) an ebook, I struggle with who really owns who. But, some people, because of convenience and simplicity, choose to give up that right of ownership.
Its still a few more steps, and not as easy as a Kindle, but then thats a selling point for Amazon the ease of use, and also importat to Amazon that Kindle user can easily buy more from them.
To be fair the same applies to books bought from Kobo, or any other ebook store. We have a pair of Nooks as well as my kindle, and when Barnes and Noble left the UK so did any way to easily buy books, Our Nook accounts moved to Sainsburies, and the to Kobo. There is pretty much no support from Kobo, and there no way to purchase and load books onto it over the Wifi, only by copying them over by USB, and Kobo too use DRM for some titles.
Calibre does automate the process. I find it painless.
My nook simple touch battery is now draining very quickly. Didn't know you could change the battery so I'll have a look. I love the buttons on either side and the touch. Not looking forward to if it completely konks out.
You used to be able to put Android on the old Nook Easy Touch ereader. Not sure if that project is still going though
I could do with an android eink just for books. It would make my life easier. I bought an amazon 7 tablet in thier recent sale and use play books on it to sync between my account on my phone. This is the best and least hassle free way for me at the moment.
No, but you can install software on Kobo called KOReader which offers better handling of pdfs (zooming in etc) Yes! The Glo HD has a screen resolution of 1448x1072 compared to Kobo Touch and Touch 2.0's 800x600. Worth the extra cost IMO.
Ad. No epub files - I might be wrong but I think that for some time now, there's a tool available on Amazon website that allows you to transfer .epub files onto your Kindle. Will advise the link layer of I'm able to find it. Ad. Forced ads - all it took on my side was to chat with a guy through Amazon chat and he's taken the ads away free of charge :) Additionally, there's an easy way to convert .epub files into .mobi through Calibre or even various websites (Granted that the quality of the converted book is not always the best i.e. empty lines between each paragraphs), anD I imagine it's a lot easier to get refund for a faulty unit from Amazon than from Kobo?
In many ways Kobo ereaders are much better value and can do more for the same or lower price. Amazon Kindles use a closed ecosystem which does not natively support .epub files which are the most common type of book format. Instead is uses .mobi and other proprietary book formats. Similar to Apple with their .ibook files. Not saying Kindles are not good or not worth it but just saying there are better and cheaper options out there. Also yes the Kindle Paperwhite has been as low as £80 BUT still includes special offers (forced ads).
How's that compared to the latest version of Kindle Paperwhite? I would've thought that because they need to compete with much more recognised brand on the market, their prices would be lower, but you can get new Paperwhite for £80 quite often with Amazon discount codes.
Looks good ..and good copied info
Errm I'm confused myself now. It does seem to be the new one but I wouldn't trust some of the retailers to be describing the reader they are actually selling!! Is this the new one? If so even cheaper! https://ao.com/product/n867kubkkep-kobo-aura-h2o-edition-tablet-black-52535-252.aspx
This is the new one. New one Old one
Ditto. Any good cases? Cheers
Managed to get one, anyone know of any good cases? Struggling to find one that I know will fit
Better than the 1st Kindle? (That's what I have and still use very very occasionally)
Thanks OP But wont let me add one to basket, if you add one to your wishlist and then go to wishlist it shows that they are OOS.
It's the same price on Google Play and Apple iBooks. You could add all of these to your title OP
Thanks OP, ordered. Same price on Kobo store too for those with a Kobo reader.
Too obscure for me. Mark E Smith is (was) far more famous, in Manchester at least. A shame he never appeared on Graham Norton instead of Wahlberg, say there was a mix up over bookings or something.
I think he's referring to Marky Mark - a young Mark Wahlberg when he was a (lame) rapper.
Thanks! Grabbed one at John Lewis
Anyone knows how to enable google play and 3rd party android apps on the Kobo aura editions 2 ? Just got my mom one, and there is an android app i need to install which has her favourite books Thanks!
Kindle offers better hardware for the money although has the Amazon restrictions. It's the typical printer ink, shaving kit selling model. I like Kobo but would not get this particular model or a 6" in general, just too small. The Kobo Aura One at 7.8" and 300 DPI is nice but has been 200 quid forever, the price needs to come down.
Just to add - it comes with a 2 year manufactures warranty
It looks like John Lewis have the same price. This includes their 2 year guarantee Good video review from the guys at Goodereader. They also have a comparison video with the Kindle Paperwhite 3 ( watch?v=2YCcmwavzDM )
Go onto the Goodreads website. Select the genre you like and you will find lots of book reviews. Hope that helps.
Can anyone recommend me some good reads in the sale?
You can use Calibre on PC and Mac to convert between Amazon and Kobo formats
Deal is on the books. You can get a free app from them to read the books.
Pointless.Only their oldest ereader.has 20 off, which is more.expensive and worse than Kindle and I hate Kindle. Nothing on Aura One. What is the.deal exactly?
Open a case. If they don't respond ebay will intervene give you a return label and your money back. It is very important to ignore messages they send outside of the refund case and email. After you get your money back leave negative feedback.
Do not buy, they are sending the Kobo Aura Edition 2.
my wife is disappointed too...... :|
I got a 6" Aura Edition 2. I'm trying to keep the returns process within ebay as suggested by faxmax but I've had no reply from Currys within the last two days
There's more in stock.
ok cheers, I bought a paperwhite in the end, kobos are crap
does this ereader have adjustable lighting?
Yes it's possible and not difficult, but you need a little tech knowledge and it's probably verboten to explain the exact method here. On another and (naturally) completely unrelated note, Calibre is an excellent program for managing ebook collections in various formats, at least once you've got to grips with the admittedly unintuitive and messy interface.
How would one get kindle book on here? Or is that not possible
I was given a Kobo h20 as s gift, the screen failed after 6 weeks. Approximately 1/3 of it was black. Contacted retailer and Kobo who both had no interest and informed me I'd broken the screen by dropping it. I was advised to buy a new one. The device hadn't been dropped, it had sat on the bedside table. Worst reader I've owned, I bought a Kindle and have never looked back. Search the Internet for 'Kobo screen issues' before you buy, I wish I had.
I find that Kobo's tend to retain their battery charge for a long time if not in use. Not sure about the modern Kindles as the last one I had was 3rd gen
Completely wonderful ereader. I replaced my Kindle with one of these and never looked back. The ability to read in the bath is superb :) Also, not buying from Amazon is great too. I tend to get books cheaper.
Amazon now pricing it at £124.99
Argos now back to normal price but Amazon still has it for £115.99 (link in the description box)
Fan of Kobo hardware, but their customer support is DIRE. Own three Kobo's in the house, but any future buys I'm switching to Amazon.
I have the first version and prefer it to my latest generation paperwhite. The screen is nicer, there is no frame as such (front is flat with no lip and the screen light is even, unlike the kindle. Pity you can't download kindle books directly to it without faffing around with calibre.
I have both Kobe and kindle,to me the different is kobo you can access the Canadian library all books for free and use Pocket,kindle you got the Amazon resource and kindle email push function,hope this can help someone x
what's the life span on these, reading a lot of reviews of the paperwhite giving up around the 2 year mark?
Its not a link. You have to find your own local library website (_;)
The link is broken?
I guess I'm not really comparing like with like when I mentioned the NookHD+ which is a tablet rather than an E-reader. If anybody else uses one of these for reading books the Libro app works well with my local library's ebook site.
Your right its not, Kindle Unlimited is better value if you only want books. I was more reminding the people who do have Prime that the features available.. Will Amazon change, I doubt it, after all they are a book seller, I swapped from Nook to Kindle as the book sellers went to the popular platform (ie Kindle) and since then Nook left UK and went to Sainsburies then Kobo and there is no store anymore so the E-readers of limited use as you can only sideload books. At least Amazon support the older devices.
FYI you are not restricted to your own library most of these will let you borrow from other libraries which are in their network using you existing membership. Some libraries will also let you join remotely. also can be used to read some magazines too.
The ancient Glo or more recent Glo HD?
If you don't know - you likely don't need it. If you don't know but still want it then just buy it and it'll be surprise when it turns up! If none of the above are applicable you could always try out that search engine thingy...
What is it?
