Kobo Launches Kobo Plus eBook Subscription Service

Yesterday Kobo announced the launch of a new ebook subscription service called Kobo Plus.

Get a 7.8-inch Kobo Aura One eReader for $160 USD (Ended)

The Kobo Aura One was the best new dedicated ebook reader released in 2016, at least that’s how I feel about it (sorry, Kindle Oasis, but the benefit of the larger screen surpasses your expensive charging cover by a mile). Now there’s a way you can get the Kobo Aura One at a steep discount. […]
