    I would like to re-open this thread...but I need to put a Canadian twist on it!!

     

    I'm looking at the Kindle from amazon, or the Kobo reader from Chapters/Indigo. Does being in Canada hold any limitations for the Kindle?? Any comments on either e-reader??

     

    Thanks!

      I'm bumping this again because I'm wanting to put this on my Christmas list.

       

      Kobo with wifi is going for $149.

       

      Bachata did you end up getting one?

              I would love to get one of these too but ned to research the Canadian issues too. I've heard there problems with the Kindle here in Canada.

                Didn't realize this was back open. On the reading thread we were discussing. I just upgraded to the Nook from Sony. My MIL has the kindle. Comparing the 2 (in my opinion) the Nook is better. More options. You can get books FREE from your library. Amazon is locked in to amazon only books. I check out books from the library and buy from Sony, Borders and B&N. The touch screen is amazing! You flick your finger to turn the page. You get free books every friday! The update on the 19th makes for even faster page turns.

                 

                Go in store to read books for free and get coupons for free food/drinks/chocolate.  I'm in love with my Nook. And lending books to other nookians is awesome!
