Reading broadens and shapes your mind

Since I was a child, I have loved reading. Even now as an adult, I can’t go to a coffee shop without a book in my backpack. I even remember the first book I ever read: the Call of the Wild by Jack London. It’s the book of my childhood. It shaped my imagination in regards to what Canada is about—magnificent mountains, landscapes, harsh winters, and more. I looked at the Kobo store online, and voila, it is there and for less than a dollar I could download it to an e-reader and relive that amazing experience.

Reading is an amazing activity not only for your brain, but for your mind. It opens it, lets you imagine you can be one of the characters, and live a different life. Lately I’ve been getting into crime books, especially Agatha Christie’s books. They give me a thrill, but I do get a little impatient to discover who’s the real killer. Reading triggers a range of emotions in me; most importantly, it makes you feel things. Nowadays, reading is more accessible than ever, thanks to portable e-readers like the Kobo Sage. With a Kobo, there are no more excuses for not getting started on a new book!

Kobo Sage HD touchscreen eReader with stylus to read in style

If you are looking for an e-reader that lets you store all your books, the Kobo Sage HD touchscreen is what you need. Featuring 32GB of storage, it’s the perfect accessory to keep all your favourite titles, especially when you are on the go. Depending on what you are in the mood for, you can just choose from any genre without having to carry any book. Boasting a 1440 x 1920 resolution with Dark Mode on an 300 PPI E Ink Carta 1200 touchscreen, reading with a Kobo Sage is comfortable and easy on your eyes; you can keep reading for hours. Its waterproof design is also great to take it to the beach or by the pool—or just in the bath without worries. What’s also great is that you don’t have to worry about charging it up every hour since it can last up to weeks on a single charge.

Combined with the Kobo stylus that we are giving away in this contest, you will be able to make handwritten notes in eBooks or PDFs. It’s great for aspiring writers to jot ideas or anyone who likes to doodle notes and reminders. I think for me, it would be a great creative writing experience. I like that you don’t have to worry about carrying a pen and paper and can get those creative ideas rolling freely and edit and transfer them to a computer with ease.

We sent out for honest review this really cool Kobo Sage e-Reader to our blogger Ted Kritsonis. I recommend you to read it through, especially if you are figuring out which one between the Sage and the similarly designed new Libra 2 you might prefer. It’s a great read overall. Then come back, and enter this contest to win the Sage one.

Kobo Sage e-reader Contest Rules and Regulations

Good Luck.

I am an Editor on the blog team at Best Buy Canada. I enjoy travelling, writing, and learning foreign languages. On my days off, you can find me taking a stroll around Stanley Park or enjoying one of the many great coffee shops on Main Street in Vancouver.


  1. I absolutely love that it’s not only touch screen, A LONGER BATTERY, but also the fact that you can doodle / underline / write notes on the pages? I have one of the old school Kindles and it’s currently dying on me. I love the size of the screen as well! I’m 28 years old and sadly am already having a hard time with my eye sight, so the bigger screen is IDEAL. I also always break cords way too soon so the less I have to plug it in the better 🙂

  2. So much to love about this reader…. the long battery life, touch screen, waterproof and the ability to have audio.
    Would love to own this one.

  3. Has to be the waterproof feature for me. I like to read all around the house, including the bathtub. Also I have three kids, so water in random places is not foreign in our house.

  4. I love the long battery life of the kobo sage, as well as the fact that it’s waterproof. These two features make it perfect for traveling!

  5. So much to like about the Kobo Sage! I think water proof is a great feature as well as dark mode to east eye strain.

  6. My favourite features are the 32GB of storage, so I don’t have to pick amongst my favourite titles and the dark mode option, so it’s easier on my eyes.

  7. I love the idea that the Kobo Sage is waterproof. While I don’t intend to read in the bathtub, I think it would be great to take to the beach or the pool, knowing that you don’t have to worry if it gets a bit wet.

  8. I like its waterproof feature as I’m often reading in the bath and get drips on magazines and books I’m looking at.

  9. I really do like the screen where it’s more responsive and the screen light where the light can be dimmed with dark mode.

  10. Long battery life is important to me for all my electronics. I read a ton so not having to plug in constantly is huge.

  11. My favorite feature of the Kobo sage is that it is waterproof! I love reading in the bath and it will allow me to do so without worry! I also think the stylus is an awesome accessory to allow for annotations while I read!

  12. I like that I can listen to books and also read them depending on my circumstances. I do enjoy audio books when I am commuting and this would be a great feature for me.

  13. I love that the Kobo Sage has the Comfort Light Pro which allows for use of the backlight during the day, but also at night with a more warm tint to not cause strain or largely affect sleep!
