Have Kobo, Will Travel!

May 26, 2016

I always read when I travel, but with the forever changing baggage weight allowances and a lack of luggage space, traveling with several books is seemingly impossible.

That was until my friends at Kobo offered to send me thier newest eReader, the Kobo Glo HD.

This was an opportunity to take a vacation with my entire library of favourite titles.

Not only can I load hundreds of ‘books’ on to the device, It’s actually so small it fits right into my blazer or back pocket!

Try that with a a regular book!

Now I’ll be honest, I never thought I’d be an e-reader fan. I’ve always been a hard cover type of guy, so I thought not feeling the weight in my hands would be off-putting.

But if you’ve ever strained holding a book above your head while sand falls in your eyes as you’re laying on the beach, you’ll be more than happy to trade in the heavy hard cover for the 180 gram ease of the Kobo Glo HD!

And lets talk about reading in the sun.

The screen is not only anti glare, the Glo HD’s sharpness setting literally makes it amazingly readable under direct sunlight!

And then there’s the 11 different fonts and 48 text sizes… Perfectly customizable to satisfy your picky pupils!

Like to read in the dark (or on a gloomy London tube)?

The ComfortLight feauture offers perfect light distribution for all shades of grey!

And with its battery life lasting up to 2 months with every charge, you’ll be reading from bright-to-night all vacation long!

The Kobo Glo HD has turned this eReader hypocrite into a happy eReading fan!

In fact I’m so in love with it, I’m giving one of my FAB readers a chance to win their own Kobo Glo HD so you can be as smitten as I am!

Mr. Fab Glo HD

  1. David Eggers What Is The What is one of my favorite books. It’s the true story of the Sudanese Lost Boys and their journey to America.

  2. Have you read the Alchemist by Paulo Cohelo? A story of following your dreams. One of my favorite books of all time.

  3. I recommend the Egyptian Novels (4 in total) by Wilbur Smith. Very entertaining sotry and amazingly written.

  4. Have you read The Martian by Andy Weir? Better than the movie and a seriously fun read. Or for a lesser known book: The Last Hundred Days by Patrick McGuinness about a young English guy living in Romania during the last 100 days of Ceausescu’s reign? A well written book about perception and how easy it is to be on the bad side of history.

  5. ANYthing by Simon Doonan! You have to read “Gay Men Don’t Get Fat” and “Eccentric Glamour.” Perfect for the beach, bed, bath, and beyond xo

  6. Anything by Simon Doonan – his writing is pure joy! “Gay Men Don’t Get Fat” and “Eccentric Glamour” are perfect for the beach, bed, bath, and beyond! xo

  7. I’ve recently read two really awesome books: The Regional Office Is Under Attack!
    by Manuel Gonzales and Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel. Both are kind of light sci-fi which isn’t usually my thing but these books blew me away!

  8. Fun and quirky the Rosie Project and In the City of Bikes is a cool read about why bikes are so popular in the Netherlbads and Ansterdam in particular.

  9. Have you read any of Dan Brown’s books (including The Davinci Code? They are all amazing.

  10. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak if you haven’t already read it. The movie is not good but the book is great!

  11. If you want to read book that will blow your mind….Salt Sugar Fat by Michael Moss.
    You will never look at food the same way.

  12. Currently re-enjoying Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends (full disclosure: reading it with my 9yr old) Super silly and whimsical.

  13. A House in the Sky by Amanda Lindhout, the Wind Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami and The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley:)

  14. The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
    The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time by Mark Haddon
    I have given Both of these books to others as gifts many times over and have yet to find anyone who does not list them on their all time favorite list once they have read them!

Looking forward to reading your comments!
