E-Readers: Kindle vs. Kobo

I’ve been using an e-reader since July of 2020, and I gotta say, I’m completely hooked. A blog post about my switch from paper books to e-books will follow, but for now I want to tell you about the differences between the two major e-readers. Having tried both, I can say with confidence that I prefer the Kobo. But different people look for different things in their devices, so I thought I’d list some of the reasons you could go for either one.

2020 Goals & Resolutions

Happy 2020! A new decade, haven’t showered since last year, blah blah, you’ve heard it all before.

I did manage to finish 4 books, though, which is actually impressive considering how much I had going on.
