A lot of you don’t know this, but about a year before I started my blog, I got graduated from college as a double major in English and history. Over the course of my college career, I collected a lot of books which I still own and occasionally refer to. I couldn’t bring myself to get rid of books because you never know when they might come in handy, but at the same time, we only have so much space. For this reason, the internet and ebooks have become a primary source for reading.

I recently got a new ereader, the Kobo Glo HD.   With it’s very clear 6″ black and white screen, the Kobo Glo HD is a great way to enhance your reading experience.  It is light weight and much more convenient to carry around than actual books.  It is  wifi enabled and gives you access to millions of titles, from classic novels to contemporary best sellers, text books, how-to books, and more!  (Some titles are even free!)

The product box actually has a page from Jane Eyre, which just happens to be one of my favorite books!  I looked it up in the Kobo Glo estore and was happy to find several versions of the title.  As a former student, I know how important it is to be able to access the exact version of the book that is assigned to you, so I found it very cool that a number of versions were available for the classic titles I look up.

Giving you the ability to store 3000 ebooks, plus a 2-month battery life are two more reasons why this is a good readers for students and avid readers alike.  Plus, you can download the Kobo App, and you’ll have access to all your ebooks any of your desktop computer and all mobile devices, including Android, iOS, Blackberry 10, and Windows 8.

If you are an avid reader of if you know a recent high school graduate or college student, this is definitely a great item to consider for gift giving.
