Is Kobo the eBook of the future?


Yesterday Angie and I finally bit the bullet and purchased an eReader. Specifically a Kobo Glo. Since then it’s been information overload. My learning curve is tightening like a hairpin bend. Libraries. Distributors. A whole world we knew nothing about. The scope and size of the opportunities it has brought up are simply enormous.

Up until yesterday I thought I was, in my own small way fairly well informed about eBooks, Digital Rights Management and the various electronic formats, but I’d like to say this; my mind has officially been blown. Megaton range. All via a Kobo Glo. No other eReader has quite opened the door like this. Not to just a whole new world, but a whole new continuum. I actually feel a little overwhelmed. I think I’ve just caught a glimpse of an almost unlimited publishing future, and it has the Kobo label firmly stamped in one corner.

What with that and learning how to produce my own hams from pork shoulders, plus our wedding anniversary, this is going to make for a full weekend.

  1. I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme.
    Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you?

    1. Started a blog on the WordPress free platform. Bought the domain for twenty five bucks. Chose a simple format from the available free templates, in this case zBench. Changed a colour in the ‘appearance’ tab and shunted a few widgets around. The header picture was done by using the ‘Warp’ special effect on a picture of my desk using Corel Photo paint, then resampling to the right size. No professional web designers were consulted. Subspace physics it isn’t.
