Kobo Glo eReader
Kobo Glo's revolutionary ComfortLight illuminates the screen with a soft, adjustable glow so you can read any eBook any time of day under the perfect light — no lamp required. Kobo Glo is a great eReader that supports your local bookstore. Just $129.99.
Read Comfortably, Day or Night
Read whenever you like, even in the middle of the night. Kobo Glo’s revolutionary no-glare ComfortLight technology directs light at the page not your eyes, plus it’s fully adjustable so you can create the perfect light level. Say goodnight to eyestrain!
No Glare. No Issue!
Kobo Glo’s 6" high-res XGA E Ink Pearl touchscreen is ultra-thin and durable so nothing gets between you and your eBook, not even the brightest sunlight (or a little scratch). It’s just like reading print on paper, only better.
Customize Your Reading
Typography experts have created the ultimate font exclusively for Kobo. It leaves more ink on the screen so words appear sharper and crisper than ever before. Or create your own ideal reading experience with a choice of 7 additional font styles and 24 sizes, adjustable weight and sharpness settings, and the power to set your own margins.
Your eBooks, Your Way
Make each eBook your own with in-text annotations, bookmarks, and notes. Reading something with a lot of pictures? Zoom in up to 200%, pan around images, or change page orientation all with your fingertips.
Touch To Turn
Flip pages and jump between chapters with a simple tap or swipe to devour your eBooks as quickly as you can.
Curate Your Collection
Sort your eBooks alphabetically, by title, or by author name just as you would a physical bookshelf (sorry, colour coordinating isn’t available on the Kobo Glo). Plus, it’s super easy to keep track of your faves with large cover images, multiple views, and custom lists. Now you just have to fill your library with eBooks!
Read Millions of Books!
Access nearly 3 million eBooks wherever you go with Kobo Mini’s built-in Wi Fi. You never know when you’re going to need a new read!
The Read Freely Guarantee!
Your eBooks are yours to do with as you please, so you’re never locked in to one device (unlike some other leading eReaders). That means you can read any open-format eBook on your new Kobo Glo. Plus, with free top-rated Kobo apps, you can read across devices you already own including other open eReaders.
A Portable Library!
There’s nothing worse than finishing a great read without something to go on to next. But never fear! Kobo Glo has 2 GB* of storage for up to 1,000 eBooks. Now that’s convenient.
A Battery That Lasts as Long as You Do!
Never worry about your battery dying mid-chapter; a single charge on the Kobo Glo lasts up to a month so you can read as long as you want.*
*Battery life depends on individual usage, so actual results may vary.
