You mean $189.99 + 50K PC Points.... since you can't redeem points on purchase

I love everything about my Libra though I wish it was a little lighter.

Yes, sorry for the confusion. I just factored the points into the cost, so it will be easier for people to see what they are really paying.

Is there a new one coming out soon or is this just a regular sale?
Also do you know if it is stackable with the bonus redemption event? >>> Tried it but it drops the cost below $150 so no 50k bonus.

Looks like a good deal if you're in the market for one. But I'm not sure myself. Guess I'll wait for a few more replies before buying

How is the speed on this compared to previous models for browsing through books you have downloaded in it? I found older models take forever browsing through books

None of these modern e-ink devices should have problems with speed when browsing downloaded books.

However, perhaps you found e-ink itself to be slow in response times. If so, that is just the nature of how e-ink screens behave.

This one is faster than my glo, but the issue mostly had to do with PDF's as opposed to epubs, however it's still faster will all formats it loads in my experience.

Bought a Kobo Clara from Shoppers a year or so ago (during 40% back promotion). Then spent the last year 'fighting' with my wife over who gets to use it. During the most recent 40% back promotion I picked up the Libra. I like it better for sure (slightly larger screen, physical buttons, waterproof). Took us a while to get the library Overdrive/Adobe DRM software figured out, but now it's great to get books fast and easy.

I can't redeem points to purchase this and get the 50k?

The fine print says "Spend $150 or more before taxes and after redemptions and all coupons and discounts are deducted in a single transaction to earn 50,000 PC Optimum bonus points"

I think so. Unless you add an item of at least 1 cent to bring the total to $190 or more. Then you can redeem 40,000 points.

Love my Libra h2o.
I have both kindle (older, before paper white model with buttons) and this Kobo.
I would never buy a book without buttons but between these 2 I prefer Kobo hands down.
Larger screen + backlight. I love it's square form - really easy to hold.
Very good benefit is overdrive library. I use my phone to borrow a book and then just download to Kobo to read.
Online library of Epub books huge on different languages.
But if you going to buy books they are cheaper on Amazon. That's why I have both.

If you want to serf a lot it's not for you. If you are a book lover and want read books from cover to cover it's awesome device.

Thanks, I have an aura I think and a glo, I’m fine with page turning for the most part. Just going into the book or browsing the books I loaded to find one to read is such a pain.

Maybe too many books?
