I was in a car accident almost 3 years ago and its left my neck in pretty bad shape- reading is somethign that is very difficult- holding my neck in one position has been quite painful and triggers headaches.
Sounds kind of bizarre but if I keep my head steady looking straight its not too bad. I can do this with some acrobatics with an eReader.
I first bought a KOBO, Chapters/Indigo and Borders version of an eReader.
I really liked it- the weight, etc was great. I did have some problems that were irritating and then had some serious screen problem and have had to send it back TWICE in the last month. Th screen pretty much broke with no provocation. Left my Kobo charging came back and screen messed uup and or frozen.
Sending back is HUGE hassle and don’t have it for about 10 days.
Differences Between Kobo and Amazon Kindle eReaders
My dad lent me his Kindle to try and I LOVE it! The build seems much sturdier and I like you can turn pages on either side of the eReader.
The page turn time WAY better- tho I don’t think I would have noticed the Kobo being slow if I hadn’t tried Kindle.
I also find pages to be a bit crisper- but that wouldn’t be a deal breaker.
I got my Kobo for 100.00 at Borders they are 129.00 here in Canada plus taxes. The Amazon Kindleis about 170.00 with shipping and duty. Big price difference but if you can afford it I would not hesitate to get the Kindle.
