Sometimes we start one book and then decided we are not in the book for that genre today and want to start another or the one that I hate the most is I have 10-20 pages left but I don't want to carry around two books. E-reading has opened up a whole new world for readers. I have also found so many great indie authors I wouldn't have read if I wasn't using an e-reader or app.
Recently Kobo released their new e-reader, the Kobo Aura. At very first glance what I see is a mix between their glo and mini. I love the idea of the back light to be able to read when it is dark, or in low light settings, reading in bed when hubby is asleep or even reading on the couch beside him while he is watching tv. This doesn't bother him and I can still see what I am reading. Our house is horrible for lighting.
