A touching story

Wanda bought a hard-cover book yesterday.

That was very exciting for me, because while she's reading a physical book, she's not reading her Kobo.  I immediately offered to keep it company, because I knew she'd bought a couple of books I wanted to read.

I have the wireless Kobo, and she has the Kobo Touch, so it took a while to get used to how to use hers.  It's much faster at page turning than mine, which resulted in me accidentally turning too many pages a few times.  It also has a dictionary feature, which lets you look up words your finger rests on for too long.  I took advantage of this functionality to accidentally look up unfamiliar words like "rule" and "it".

Over all, I really enjoyed it - not enough to go out and buy one, but it is definitely a step up from my model. 

When I was done the books I wanted to read, I went back to my Kobo and found myself tapping on the screen to turn the pages.

  1. I've been using my Kobo Touch since Christmas and never knew there was a dictionary feature. But then, I know the meaning of 'it'. :-)
