Read comfortably, day or night - Kobo Glo's revolutionary ComfortLight illuminates the screen with a soft, adjustable glow so you can read any eBook any time of day under the perfect light - no lamp required.
Experience the ultimate readability - Because Kobo Glo's advanced high-res XGA Pearl E Ink screen doesn't use a glass overlay for its front light technology, there's never any glare, even in the brightest sunlight. And, with TypeGenius, you can create your own ideal reading experience by choosing from a selection of adjustable fonts - including a new, exclusive Kobo font designed by typography experts.
Shop one of the world's biggest eBookstores - With built-in Wi Fi, you get easy access to nearly 3 million eBooks right from your Kobo Glo. Choose from bestsellers, indie gems, or free classics. There's an eBook for every reader! Can't decide? Let Kobo Picks suggest just the right thing based on your preferences and feedback.
Sleek and stylish - Lighter and more compact than most paperbacks, Kobo Glo easily goes where you go. Plus, with a soft back in one of four fashion-forward colours and Kobo's signature quilt pattern, Kobo Glo feels comfortable in your hand and looks great, too.
Reading is a social affair - At Kobo, we're excited about social reading. Link your Kobo account to your Facebook Timeline to share your favourite passages and discover what your friends are reading, right from your Kobo Glo.
The Read Freely Guarantee - Your eBooks are yours to do with as you please, so you're never locked in to one device (unlike some other leading eReaders). That means you can read any open-format eBook on your new Kobo Glo. Plus, with free top-rated Kobo apps, you can read across devices you already own, including other open eReaders.
