Cute Size

By Heather

from Calgary, AB

I agree with some of the other customers, very difficult to set-up, terrible instructions, even tried watching YouTube videos for help and that didn't work either. Finally, after several attempts I did manage to get some books downloaded and is working well now. This shouldn't be so frustrating and time consuming, I wouldn't every buy another.

Worked out OK!

By Jac

from Ontario

Bronze Reviewer

This is my second review on this product - the first one came after the issues involved with not receiving the sleep cover. That was finally resolved to my satisfaction and I am now enjoying the Kobo Mini. I love the size and portability of this unit. I can throw it in my purse and not even notice that it is in there - weighs next to nothing! Some minor issues with page turning, but nothing I can't deal with. The Kobo website is not the easiest to use and I still can't figure out how to get book reviews. But for a back up ereader, this one fits the bill!

The Mini is the perfect size!!

By shfwilf

from Toronto

I love my Kobo Mini. It was easy to set up. I have the Kobo app loaded on several devices - Ipod touch, Blackberry playbook and my PC and I love that they all sync so that you know exactly where you are if you are reading from multiple devices. I love the app on my Ipod but I was constantly charging the device and the playbook was somewhat heavy. This is the perfect size. It fits in my pocket or purse, is light and the charge lasts a long time.

So Happy

By Fashionista

from Windsor ON

Can't believe how fast I received this in the mail. I also received the plum sleep cover I ordered. I really enjoy the size of this ereader and the sleep feature. It fits in my cossover bag and I take it everywhere. The charge lasts so long. There are tons of free books on the website as well as so many reduced books. I have never been happier with a TSC purchase.
Thanks KOBO

You really do read more with an eReader

By Sophie J

from Nova Scotia

This is my firest eReader and found it very easy to setup and use. The size is really great. I find myself taking it with me where ever I go and never miss a few minutes of reading. You really do read more. I love to read hardcover books because the print is a bit bigger but the weight of the book is hard on the wrists and arms. Problem solved with the KOBO mini. The only thing that would improve this mini eReader would be if it was back lit for reading in a darker environment.

Very Pleased

By Lari

from Vancouver

I am very happy with my purchase of the Kobo Mini. This product has been my introduction into the ereader world. It took me a few hours to get it set up...as I am not very computer savvy but once I got it going there has been no looking back. I have downloaded a few free ebooks and made a purchase of my sister's book from my Kobo. (Check out Nadine Doolittle's book "Grey Lady" if you like mystery novels). I doubt that will ever give up hard cover books, but this is a wonderful addition to my reading repertoire.

LOVE IT!

By Bonnie Dale

from Toronto

Takes an hour or so to get used to it, but once you get the hang of it, you will never read anything else again. So small it fits into my coat pocket yet the page is large enough to feel and read like print.

Love this mini e-Reader

By WDH

from Alberta

I have both an iPad as well as a Sony e-Reader but wanted a smaller reader to put in my purse so I could read while waiting at Dr. appointments etc. This is perfect, was very easy to setup and purchase books. I have to admit it has more options than my older Sony so I like it much better.

Love it, Love It, LOVE IT!

By LJM

from Nepean

I've been a firm believer in Kobo since I purchased the original version and the Mini just confirms how much I love it. The convenience of carrying so many books with me in such a tiny bundle is wonderful; I now look forward to line-ups at the grocery store so I can snatch a few moments of reading while I wait. And the sleep-cover feature increases my reading productivity as I don't need to wait for my eReader to "wake up". I'm forever raving to friends, family and total strangers about the benefits of Kobo and the Mini. Hope you decide to make this a part of your reading life.
