Kobo wanted, must be Kobo as all my books are on Kobo.


Consider most models as long in good working order with no faults.


 


Thanks

Can you convert the books you have got? This is always my concern about the smaller brands, being locked into their own eco system.  I have just got one of the new Voyages using the affiliate link on here, and it is such a great ebook reader compared to the older generation e-ink displays.

It isn't off topic at all, and I am not sure what you mean by debate. You said that all your books were in that format, so that is why you needed that particular brand. If you could change the format, then you don't need to be restricted to that one brand. A quick google and can see that NL sell them https://www.noelleeming.co.nz/shop/computers/computers/e-readers/c8001-c10005-c420405-p1.html and on special with warranty . Looks like $210 is the going rate.

Okay maybe not quite of topic.
However I am looking for a 2nd hand Kobo.
Not interested in doing conversions ad I use different devices to read them and want to be logged in to my Kobo account.
Thanks
