I’ve been KOBO’ed

About Kobo

Inspired by a “Read Freely” philosophy and a passion for innovation, Kobo is one of the world’s fastest-growing eReading services. Read Freely stems from Kobo’s belief that consumers should have the freedom to read any book, anytime, anyplace – and on any device. As a result, Kobo has attracted millions of readers from more than 190 countries and features one of the world’s largest eReading catalogues with over 3.5 million eBook, newspaper and magazine titles.

Founded in 2009, Kobo is owned by the Tokyo-based Rakuten, Japan’s largest eCommerce operator. Headquartered in Toronto our over 300 employees are proud of Kobo’s top-ranked eReading applications for the iPad, iPhone, Android, Windows and our own line of eReaders, including the award winning Kobo Touch and Kobo Vox.

As technology continues to push the envelope and break down geographic borders, Kobo believes that reading no longer has to be an isolated activity. We’re committed to making reading a more engaging social experience with such apps as Pulse and Reading Life, which let you share and celebrate every aspect of your reading life – from reviews and recommendations to trends and reading challenges.

So what does this really mean?

KOBO is some good shit, man.  A local book store is where I first heard of KOBO.  Yes, A LOCAL, INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORE.  The owner explained that KOBO was designed to keep booksellers stay in business.  Or at least offer way to compete with evolving technology.  If a consumer purchases an e-book on the independent bookstores KOBO tab, a portion of the proceeds goes directly to the that business.  That’s way, cool.  Below I’ve included the link for my book.  Since there are several independents here in Traverse, I’ve included the KOBO link to remain impartial.


So, I’m thinkin’ I need another makeover to add the KOBO link in the book icon over there.  Considering my issue with copying/pasting those stars from the FIVE STAR REVIEWS I’ve received, I’ve decided to seek help.  More on that to come – Please be patient.  In the meantime, please KOBO nicely.
