Booksellers, Kobo partner in ‘read freely’ philosophy

Posted: November 21, 2012 - 11:57am

The American Booksellers Association is partnering with  Kobo to make ereaders and ebooks available at independent bookstores nationwide, including the Homer Bookstore. Kobo, a leader in ereading, is committed to a “read freely” philosophy so their ebooks also can be read on iPhones and iPads, Androids, Nooks, laptop and desktops computers. 

Currently Kobo has two readers available — the Mini for those who want to read on the go, and the Glo which has a lighted screen.

The Homer Bookstore is now selling Kobo ereaders and ebooks. By setting up an account through the bookstore’s website (homerbookstore.com), customers can support a local business while reading electronically. As a special introduction, the Kobo mini ereader will be on sale this Friday and Saturday only at the Homer Bookstore.

The bookstore is located at 332 E. Pioneer Ave.; the phone number is 235-7496.
