Kindle or Kobo?
Victoria #recommend #e-book
Kindle, because like it or not, Amazon still has the largest library by far. But I’m watching the Kobo/Walmart experiment with interest.
I started with a Nook, and I loved it. I got a second Nook, loved that too. Then hubby got me a Kindle. The love I feel for my Kindle makes my love for my Nook look like child’s play, LOL! Kobo may have BOGO, but Amazon has a zillion FREE books and Kindle Unlimited—which I use all the time!
@Aless I’ve not found that issue with any of the free books I’ve read.
Kobo is better in ease of use. Kindle has more selection a d better prices. Jave used both
Kobo for me ?
I’ve never even heard of a Kobo. Lol.
@Carissa had to look it up
Kindle and Nook. Have them both.
Kobo, but that’s because that one is sold in my country a lot and a lot of local (online) retailers are supported for over-the-air downloading of ebooks.
kindle specifically paperwhite
I have a Kindle and I like it, but I have no experience with a Kobo.
Kobo because it sounds cool
I have a Kobo but would like a Kindle too.
Still a Nook person.
An Android could do both 😉
Just uninstalled Kobo after seeing how high the prices were. Most of those ebooks and audiobooks are free in online libraries. Even Scribd would be cheaper for $9/mo.
Both are good options, but it really depends on a couple of things. Kobo owns the software that most libraries use for their ebook platform (Overdrive), which makes borrowing books easier on a Kobo (you can do it directly from the device). Kobo also supports a more extensive variety of formats than the Kindle does and with their recent partnership with WalMart, will likely be expanding in the US/North American market a great deal more than in previous years. All that said, Amazon isn’t going anywhere anytime soon and their selection is quite extensive. Both are excellent devices. The only word of warning I would give is regarding the nook. With the recent announcement that B&N is looking for a buyer, I would be wary about buying into that ecosystem until they have worked out their financial issues. I’m sure you’d be happy either way! Hope that helps!
what’s Kobo? I do Kindle.
I have a Nook and a Kindle, but the Kobo sounds interesting too. My favorite medium, though, is a real book.
