    Get a Kobo if you are in Canada if you want free books from the Library.

    This is weird to say but …. I PREFER the adds on the kindle paperwhite. It has gotten me really good deals on great books.

    Consider the FREE CALIBRE app … VERY HELPFUL in managing ebook content … and to easily convert ebooks/PDFs to your desired format (e.g. mobi, epub, pdf) … (btw: I LOVE my paperwhite … BUT it did brick on me and I had to replace it …

    I owned all the kindles at one point. i loved the Voyage the best. My oasis 32gb has the worst battery life. drops 20% a day just sitting idle. The 7 inch samsung Nook is horrid. no memory at all you have to delete all your apps and keep it minimal

    Why there is no inkBOOK Explore or inkBOOK Prime? inkBOOK Lumos is basically the same as Kindle Paperwhite but for the much lower price!

    "More books to read on Amazon"That assumes that I want to buy books or that I might be interested in supporting Amazon. I'm not. I read a minimum of 100 books a year, and cannot afford to buy every one of them. I mostly download books from the library (I am a member of two) and sometimes from Gutenberg Press. I would like to remind watchers that you can use libraries to meet a large part of your reading needs and use the money you save to buy the e-reader which supports both the Overdrive and Libby app and PDfs. Now, you may be wondering because that was not even discussed, which e-reader is that?

    I found that also, many more books, cheaper and glass screen, think kobo have a plastic screen, so how long till you get scratches on the screen.

    I'm still confused. I just need a one word answer: what e-reader should i get?

    Kobo has more formats. Yes, that could be right but with Calibre that doesn´t matter at all. I have transformed Epub, pdf and docs easily and sent them to my kindle without any issues. At least for me, I love my kindle paperwhite, it´s my first e-reader and it´s making me read a lot more than I was reading in the past few years.

    Miles off the mark. Keeps saying "it's just about the books" or "Kindle has everything you need". Except it's 2018 and they still can't sort the colour temperature of the backlight. Bright blue/white light for a device many people use before bed is simply unacceptable. The Kindle is only marginally better than the Kobo Clara HD but even if the gap were 10x as big, this is a dealbreaker.
