Kobo eReaders Deals in 2021 Boxing Week


We have introduced Informtion about Amazon Kindle and e-readers. Kindle might be the most popular e-reader. However, as a Canadian, using Kindle is actually a bit embarrassing, because until now Kindle has not been able to directly support e-books that are from Canadian local libraries.

Kindle does not support the format epub (from OverDriver) used by Canadian libraries, so if Canadians want to read e-books from local libraries on Kindle, they have to use third-party software (such as Calibre) on the computer to convert to a format that Kindle can support, and then send back to Kindle to read. But not all e-books in local libraries can be converted by software, such as some encrypted e-books Books or e-books with copyright restrictions.

Therefore, many Canadians did not choose Kindle, but bought another e-reader that can directly support e-books in local Canadian libraries, which is Kobo eReader.
