    Phone and crosswords. Phone is fine- uses no power for the bit I read-free open source books. Some classics out there :thumbsup:-see above.
    And nothing like a bit of good hearty swearing when you can't work out 10 across. One crossword a day/evening.

    Well kobo is good at accepting lots of formats, so if the books are at all available digitally you would be able to get them on a kobo!

    Kobo can't read Amazon mobi books with DRM and you can't access a Kindle library with one.

    I'd personally rather use Kobo or other more open reader but Kindle just offers more and on balance I'm with Kindle now.

    It was more in response to his comment about reading open source books. Though it is possible to get kindle exclusives on a kobo, but it does take a bit of work around (you need to run it through a DRM removal program).

    It does seem the kindle store does have the best range, but I don’t like the way they trap you in by design. Obviously if you’re fine with that it’s the simplest solution!
