Disclosure: I am part of the PTPA Brand Ambassador Program with Kobo and I received Compensation as part of my affiliation with this group. The opinions on this blog are my own. I love reading books. I have a bookshelf full of books in my house and I have never considered reading a book another way. I have friends and family members with e-readers so when the opportunity came to take the 7 day Kobo Glo HD challenge, I was intrigued to see what all of the hype was about. I returned my favorite books to my bookshelf and downloaded a few that I was interested in reading to my Kobo Glo HD. Here are my 6 Reasons to own the Kobo Glo HD: 1. Instant book access- Sometimes when someone recommends a book you want to start reading it right away. With paper books, you have to run to the library, go to the story or wait for the mail to deliver it. With the Kobo Glo HD you get instant book access to all of your favorite books. No waiting with the Kobo Glo HD. You can start reading right when you want to! 2. Convenient- Download The Kobo App! It can be used on many devices, making reading easy and accessible. Did you know that you can download the Kobo app on your phone? This make it convenient to reader anytime you are on the go! 3. All of your favorite books all in one place- Imagine how tall of a stack of books it would be if I were to keep all of my favorite books together in one place. Right now I have about 30 books on my Kobo Glo HD. Imagine if I wanted to keep all those books conveniently on by bedside stand. I’m guessing it wouldn’t look like this: 4. Light weight- There are so many of my favorite books that are not small books. Some of them are 600+ pages. Seriously, they get heavy sometimes and my arms get tired of holding them open when I read. I know this may sound like complaining– but thats a lot of pages! I love that the Kobo Glo HD is small and lightweight. At 6″, you can take this with you wherever you go. Stick it in your purse or carry it in your diaper bag! 5. Read at night- I will tell you my biggest problem when it comes to reading a book. I CANNOT put it down. I want to know so badly what is going to happen that I stay up REALLY late reading. This DRIVES MY HUSBAND crazy! Why, because when I read a paper book I have to have a light on so I can see the pages. I love that I could read the Kobo Glo HD at night without bothering my husband. 6. Share with others- The first day that I used my Kobo, this is what happened: At first I was frustrated, because I wanted to try it out myself, but then it made me realize how amazing it was that everyone in my family could share this little device and stored on it have books that each of us are currently reading. We are getting ready to go on vacation and will have lots of time for reading. This is going to be perfect for giving everyone a chance to read their favorite books without having to lug around a whole stack of books. Each person can take their turn reading and when they are finished, it saves their page for when they came back. Everyone gets a turn and everyone is happy! I will admit, I was very hesitant to try the Kobo Glo HD because I love turning the pages of a good book. It did not take me long to see why everyone loved them. The reasons above show you how convenient it is to use and a great purchase for a family with lots of readers. I know my kids and I will spend lots of time enjoying reading our favorite books on the Kobo Glo HD. I love how convenient it is for travel and that I can read at night! I say this 7 day challenge was a success!!
