Over the past few years, many of my family and friends have become proud owners of an eReader; but I had always shied away from them, I actually never felt I would like one. I guess you could say I was a bit of a traditional, old school, paper style, book snob.
I like the feel of a book in my hands and the clean almost linen-like smell of the new crisp pages. Heck, I even like the look of a book, complete with a pretty bookmark tucked neatly inside, perched on my bedside table. I am sure you have already guessed what I’m about to say next; I have a new love, and his name is, Kobo Arc!
This past Christmas my kids gave me a Kobo Arc and it has pretty much been my constant companion ever since. eReaders, like anything computer related, have evolved rapidly over the past few years and this baby has all the bells and whistles!
Not only are you able to read your current book into the wee hours without disturbing your bed partner (the pages are in colour and illuminated) but this little beauty is also a tablet, so you can surf the web, check your e-mail, blog, like, tweet, pin and do pretty well anything you could do on your PC or laptop. It also has a built in camera so you can snap a picture (preferably of you bedmate while he/she is snoring…lol) or Skype with family and friends in far away lands. No bulky bags to carry either, at only 7″ in length, it will fit perfectly in you handbag, so just slip it in and take it with you.
If you are in the market for an eReader or a smaller tablet I would highly recommend the versatility of this little gem and not surprising at all, the Kobo Arc has the PTPA seal of approval!
