Kobo eReaders Deals in 2021 Boxing Week
We have introduced Informtion about Amazon Kindle and e-readers. Kindle might be the most popular e-reader. However, as a Canadian, using Kindle is actually a bit embarrassing, because until now Kindle has not been able to directly support e-books that are from Canadian local libraries.
Kindle does not support the format epub (from OverDriver) used by Canadian libraries, so if Canadians want to read e-books from local libraries on Kindle, they have to use third-party software (such as Calibre) on the computer to convert to a format that Kindle can support, and then send back to Kindle to read. But not all e-books in local libraries can be converted by software, such as some encrypted e-books Books or e-books with copyright restrictions.
Therefore, many Canadians did not choose Kindle, but bought another e-reader that can directly support e-books in local Canadian libraries, which is Kobo eReader.
Unlike Kindle, Kobo e-reader supports epub book format. So Canadians can use it to borrow and read books directly from Canadian local libraries.
Here We list the file formats supported by Kobo eReader and Kindle eReader:
