Very disappointing gift
This e-reader came with 5 books offered for free. I have been in contact with the Shopping Channel since the middle of June, because the offer for the book Nerves of Steel, by CJ Lyons' promotion code would not work. I cannot download this book!! I have been attempting to get this book with another code for free and the channel keeps promising that they contacted Kobo about it, but it is July 12 and I have yet to receive the book. As for the reader, it is okay. And I was able to download the other four books, but the service at the Shopping Channel in connection to KOBO has been very disappointing. Let the buyer beware!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

LOVE my MINI!
from Winnipeg, MB
Pros: Great product, can read with one or both hands on a crowded bus, so light weight, comfortable and wonderful to imerse yourself in a great read. I read everywhere and all the time, can not put down my KOBO MINI. Took minutes to set up the KOBO desktop and only problem it is so easy to order books and load onto my MIni I can't stop. I'm like a kid in the candy store. Love my Mini! ..............Cons: Too easy to order & load books, I need more time to read all the books!
I would highly recommend this product!

I received the full sized Kobo for Mother's Day and didn't think I would love it as much as I do. Then the Kobo Mini was featured in a Showstopper at an unbelievable price, so couldn't resist the chance to pick it up. I absolutely love it. Such a nice size and it will prove invaluable when I travel. I was totally impressed as well with the speed of the delivery. I received notification that it had shipped, and then the next day it was there. Amazing service!
My 2nd Kobo
from KW area, Ontario
This is my 2nd Kobo,I ordered because I love my Kobo Glo so much but liked the idea of this being so much smaller, it fits perfectly in my small purse.I loved that shipping was included as was a cover and 5 free books, that alone is worth the price.When I received it and set it up I wished I hadn't set up a separate email address as this caused some issues,so I reccommend that if this is an additional Kobo, just use your previous account (email address).Also I could only download 4 of the 5 books, I called Kobo and The Shopping Channel, TSC said they would email me a new code, but I have yet after 1 week to receive anything from TSC.
Kobo is the Best!
from Niagara Falls
I bought this showstopper to give as a birthday gift. Great price! I'm a Kobo user myself...what can you say about it other than it is great and you won't regret your purchase. The only thing that might have been nicer, is to have included a "sleep cover" instead of the "snap on".
Love my Kobo Mini
I missed out on buying the Mini the first time it was on the SC so I just kept watching for it to come up again. I jumped on it as soon as it was advertised. It came within two days and I'm soooooo happy. It is very easy to use and so easy to purchase and get books. Now I'm watching for it to come up again for my hubby and two friends. Best purchase I've made in a long time!!
from Thornhill, Ont.
I bought one for myself when they first came out and loved it so I bought 2 more for my husband and son. They like it, too. My only complaint is that I can no longer find the free ebooks.
Love my Kobo!

Great size, very easy to use and set up and my husband uses it too.
If you read -- you need a Kobo
from Halifax NS
I thought this was a frivolity when I ordered it and I expected that I would probably be sending it back. I have a tablet, a mini-tab, etc. and I love to read REAL books best of all. I was super impressed when I received it and it has been in my handbag or pocket ever since.Here's why:1. The sync-up is seamless and I was connected to my "library" on my tablet within minutes.2. No on-air description can prepare you for the diminutive size or the incredibly light weight of the mini. I read newspapers that weigh more...3. The ability to change font size or typeface is not just a gimmick. I am having some eye challenges at the moment and switching the font and typeface is very helpful in avoiding eyestrain.4. The "feeling" is definitely more like reading a real book. The page refreshes well and the cover picture of the book stays displayed on your screen until you change it, just like the cover of a regular book.You will not be disappointed with this purchase and like me, you will probably wish you had picked up an early Christmas present when this was offered at the Showstopper price.
