  • Anybody have any ideas on how to get free books for Kobo ereader.
    The web site offers E Books but they are nearly as expensive as the real thing.
    I think they are produced in Epub FORMAT.

    Any offers welcome.
    Certainly cant seemed to use kindle or similar to read.
  • baen books is a great ebooks website, all science fiction and fantasy, lots of free books and not ancient out of prints either. Also can download in any format and books are cheap because they are in US$ averaging $6 which comes to about £3.50 depending on exchange rate.
  • Just a note that although Amazon have a Kindle at £69.99, a charger will cost you another £8.99. OK if you already have one in the house and don't need another, I suppose(but my husband is always losing his :mad:

    You can download from Gutenberg loads but you need to use Adobe digital editions to put then on Kobo which is quite easy to do. If you have problems Kobo support is quite good.

    I have sent an email to the broken links address but thought I would post it here too....
    The article is incorrect when it says you can use the paperwhite for web browsing anywhere. You can only access amazon and wikipedia over the 3g connection. (this is a change from previous kindles), you have to connect to a wi-fi network to get any other web pages

    See the "tip" on this page

    Thanks for letting us know Zogger - I'll check this out and update the guide.

    Many thanks,

    Followed the link that arrived today in the regular mailing for Asda to buy Kobo Glo but they don't have any! Don't believe they've sold out in half a day :-(

    Hi sc867, thanks for flagging this - Asda had previously said stock levels were good, but it appears it has either sold out of it has made the product unavailable. It is at WHSmith for the same price though:

    I'll be adding it to the guide now :)

  • I saw the info about a £10 discount for the basic kindle for first time tesco direct customers and went into a Tesco store (one of the huge ones) to find the leaflet with the code. The staff had no idea what I was talking about, even when I showed them the link on my phone. Any ideas on the best way to get the code? Thanks.
