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).

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.

davening

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.

gavin1

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.

gavin1

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.

captainbeaky

You used to be able to put Android on the old Nook Easy Touch ereader. Not sure if that project is still going though

gaz12000

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.

prittsticks

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?

puddleuk

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).

Ratlee94

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.

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.

faxmax

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

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.

does this ereader have adjustable lighting?

VladTheImploder

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.

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

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.

gavin1

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.

sreenireddy

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.

pasheast

That really is a thoughtless, if not ignorant, point of view. What you are in effect saying is that you think we all should be deciding whether to vote hot or cold on the bases of cost alone. You are overlooking the varied reasons why people vote here -- even on 'free' items. You may disapprove of what is being offered; think the item is inferior to a similar free item; know that the item is potentially dangerous; know that by asking for the free item you have to agree to receive spam; don't want to support a supplier whose products you think are unethical; the op has given the wrong information or link, etc. We make up our own minds about how we vote, you make up yours. And none of are obliged to say why we vote as we do -- that is also up to us, individually.
