Kobo Mini

I bought a Kobo about two years ago for my elder daughter, Grace. Last week I saw the black Friday deal from Chapters. Kobo Mini at $49.99, original price is $79.99. So I called it a great deal.

It is smaller. It can be put inside pants pocket. Reading is good habit for kids. Grace has a big one, small Kobo Mini is good for here little sister, Gloria.

It is very small, and light. Only 134g. But the capacity is 2GB. You can put a lot of books in it.
