A Kobo ereader will likely have you reading a lot more. In fact, the newest ereader in their lineup, the Kobo Nia, with its slim, no frills approach, is all about what you are reading rather than what you are using to read. It’s light enough for anyone to hold for prolonged periods and small enough to fit into a pocket or a handbag. And it’s going to be a great prize for two people who read through my short article and enter this contest.

You won’t want to put down the Kobo Nia ereader

I love reading as much as I love writing. I have done plenty of both in my life. Of course, my job as Editor in Chief of the Best Buy Blog requires me to write a lot of articles—and read even more articles. However, I still make time for writing and reading as a pasttime; not as much as I would like to or as I did in the past, unfortunately. You see, I once had a Kobo; that was when I was writing and reading a lot. One of the first things I did after I finished writing my first novel was to upload it to my Kobo. I was so used to reading on the Kobo that I found it much easier to read and edit my own books on the Kobo too. I found it really helped my creative process.

The fact is, when you have a Kobo, you will likely get more interested in books. Partly, it’s the convenience; partly it’s the ease of picking it up and having thousands of books right there in your hands. I don’t read as much as I used to—as I said, my Kobo was stolen. It’s about time I go out and buy another one!

What will you read first on the Kobo Nia ereader

Do you have more than one book on the go at any one time? I always have more than one that I’m reading. The Kobo Nia is perfect for people like you and me since all your books can be in one place. The first book I’d put on an ereader is Kazuo Ishiguro’s “The Buried Giant.” I rarely get into fantasy type stories but I’m about 100 pages in and this one has me hooked. I would likely add a few of Ishiguro’s books now that I know I love his writing style.

Of course, you could add books to any Kobo: they have models that are waterproof, models with bigger screens … so choose the one that works for you. Ted recently reviewed the Kobo Nia and he pointed out many of the features found in the range of Kobo devices, but emphasized that the Nia is perfect for what you need it for: reading. Read his review, decide on an ereader, then load it up with books or get a subscription from Kobo and open your world to books, books, and more books.

  1. Kobo Libra H20 7″ digital e-reader with touchscreen and sleep cover.

    I would read “Becoming” by Michelle Obama

  2. Book would be “Talking to Strangers”, by Malcom Gladwell and I would pick the Kobo Libra H2O 7″ Digital eReader w/Touchscreen (N873-KU-BK-K-EP) & SleepCover Case -Black

  3. I have an old Kobo Touch that I really like but it’s getting on in years. I like the simplicity of the Kobo Nia with the snazzy aqua sleepcover – I just want to read books from the library (I’m super frugal) or I’ll buy the occasional must-read-now when it’s on special. I don’t want any extra bells and whistles. My first must read on my new Kobo Nia would be The Body : a guide for occupants by Bill Bryson.

  4. My favourite Kobo is the Kobo Nia 6″ digital reader and the first book I would add to the digital reader would be Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone. Thanks to Best Buy for this amazing contest!

  5. I think the Mia sounds great for just being able to throw it into my bag. I would buy From the Ashes – I’ve heard so many good things about it and I want to support more Indigenous authors.

  6. Kobo Libra H2O 7″ Digital eReader w/Touchscreen (N873-KU-BK-K-EP) & SleepCover Case -Black

  9. My favourite Kobo is the Nia Digital Touchscreen eReader, currently have an old kindle and having a touchscreen would be awesome. I would download the book Superfudge and read it with my daughter

  10. Currently using the Clara HD purchased at Best Buy and I don’t love it. My first Kobo was the Glo and I loved except it stopped working. The Nia looks like we were meant for each other! Good luck & stay safe beautiful people!!

  11. I think I like the Kobo Libr H2O the best, and if I had a new eReader, I’d probably add the Earthsea Cycle Series by Ursula Le Guin to it first!

  12. My favourite kobo is Libra H2O since I would use it to read manuals for equipment in the rain.
    First book would be Guards by Terry Pratchett.
