Start to Use Feedly cloud

I used selfoss about 5 month. As a replacement of Google Reader, it is good, but not good enough. The development is slow. The duplication of items still there.
Now I give it up and go for Feedly.
Feedly is a Cloud Feed Reader platform.
I can read feeds on desktop. I can read feeds on my Android with Feedly App.
Feedly will tell you how many readers on a particular blog feed. Look at one of my blog, it has 1K readers.

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.
